Intrepid wakeboarder gains notoriety for wild ride in roadside ditch

Guy Bell temporarily exits the ditch

A West Texas man has gained notoriety for wakeboarding on his knees in a flooded ditch after a recent storm.

The accompanying footage shows Guy Bell, of Bushland, having a grand old time clutching a rope tied to a vehicle and performing tricks as he speeds across the muddy roadside waterway.

At one point the opportunistic thrill-seeker exits and reenters the ditch without missing a beat.

Bell, who was accompanied by two others in the video, posted the 41-second clip to Facebook on Monday. As of Thursday morning it had been widely shared and viewed more than 320,000 times.

This type of activity is not for everybody, obviously

Many in the comments section tagged others and implied that they’d like to try this.

At least one local news station was not so enthusiastic, however.

Stated the Lubbock-based KCBD: “We caution you probably shouldn’t try this at home, even if it looks like a lot of fun.”
