This may have happened a good number of years ago, but it's so unique that it's definitely worth sharing once again in case you haven't seen this before. There's a quick video below too, to see it for yourself.
In 2010, Jan Schwiderek in partnership with the AIDA Cruises line, performed a stunt of water skiing behind the 68,500-ton (GRT) cruise ship AIDAbella for more than six minutes to achieve a Guinness world record.
The stunt was performed in 2010 off the Spanish coast in the Bay of Alicante as passengers and crew aboard the 252 meter AIDAbella gathered at the stern of the ship to watch in awe.
To make this happen, a "rolling start" was deployed in which Jan Schwiderek was pulled up by a speedboat while on the skis at full speed of 14 knots. The stunt lasted for 6 minutes and 25 seconds and to this day is the current world record for pulling a water-ski rider.
So, who wants to water ski behind a cruise ship?
