Aquaplanist spends 24 hours being pulled through water sitting on a piece of board!
"This isn't a time-piece tale - it concerns a record-breaking aquaplanist"
High angle shot of a man on an aquaplane board being pulled away from a quayside by a small motor boat. He stands on the board and waves at the camera. L/S of the man being pulled through the water. He is sitting on a chair on the aquaplane board. M/S of the man as he scratches his chin then turns and smiles at the camera. He laughs then stretches out his arms - no hands!
"Twenty-four precarious hours he spent on this aquaplane! With meals a la tray - " M/S of a meal being handed to the aquaplanist by a man precariously balanced on the front of a speeding boat. The meal is handed over on a large tray. The aquaplanist holds out a mug and tea (or coffee) is poured into it. C/U of the man drinking his tea with the tray on his lap. He eats his bread and butter. Funny, quirky item.
