Barefoot Water Skiing DevinSuperTramp Video Goes Viral

Tuesday, August 5th, 2014

A few months ago the WBC was contacted by Vooray and Devin SuperTramp.  This was and is a big deal.  If you aren’t aware Vooray is an extremely trendy clothing and accessory company their moto is Live Ride Play if that give you a better idea of how awesome the products they have to offer are! Drum roll please………. Now for Devin Graham AKA SuperTramp he is a YouTube video genius.  Devin has an eye for capturing exactly what he desires to shoot and the talent of using an array of major camera equipment. Now do you see why we were so excited to be in contact with these two phenomenal companies?  After some coordination everything was scheduled and the plans for a video were in the making.

Multiple boats, jetskis, drivers, skiers, plane and a pilot came together to create what is right now at this very moment the most viewed video on YouTube. “Barefoot Skiing Behind a Plane 4K Insane” is at the top of the Trending charts! The attention of Red Bull was grasped they commented on the video “These guys must have wings.”

Fox news called the ski school and interviewed Ben Groen then on the evening news showed some clips of the video.  They were amazed that something so unique existed.

Mashable.com (trendy site) shared the link to the video and commented “WHOA” simply knowing that Mashable was impressed makes us happy!

Facebook Pages were especially impressed with the pushups on the water, and so are all their followers.  The comments are accumulating rapidly!
