Coming to a boreen near you - flood-surfing
Sports enthusiasts use flooding as opportunity to go surfing in middle of the countryside
For three extreme sports enthusiasts armed with a remote-controlled drone, the clouds that have ended up flooding large parts of Britain had a genuinely silver lining - an opportunity to go surfing in the middle of the countryside.
Equipped with a surfboard, a long rope and a solid four-wheel drive, they ploughed their way through the picturesque country lanes of southern England. A remote-controlled drone equipped with a camera recorded their antics most normally associated with Hawaii or the Atlantic.
“There wasn’t enough wind, so we decided to go surfing instead,” Westcott said.
