Wasserreiter mit Magnesiumfackeln

Wasserreiten hinter dem Motorboot mit Magnesium-Beleuchtung bei Nacht!

Der Wasserreiter wird, auf einem Brett stehend, mittels einer Leine, welche er mit den Zähnen festhält, im schnellsten Tempo von dem Motorboot durch das Wasser gezogen. In den Händen hält er Magnesiumfackeln, welche das Ganze gespenstig beleuchten.
