On holiday it’s nice to expand your horizons and have a go at things you’ve never tried.
Wakeboarding, for most of us Britons, is probably one of those things you get roped into on a beach holiday.
The idea of gliding across the sea with great ease is extremely appealing, but how often does it go right first time?
One ambitious young woman gave it her all and kudos to her for a stellar attempt.
It all goes wrong when the waves pick up and she hits a large crest
With her friend primed the video camera, a holidaymaker decided to have a go at the watersport.
Wearing a white two piece bikini, she tied up her brunette hair so she could concentrate on the job at hand.
And it goes really well, initially. She can stand up on the board and seems to have her balance perfectly.
But it all goes wrong when the waves pick up slightly and she hits a large crest.
Viral video: Three million people have watched this video of a bikini girl
Viral video: The woman is wakeboarding and has a wobble
The women realises she’s about to fall off and tries to stabilise herself.
Holding her giant beer in one hand, she raises the other to try and gain as much stability as possible.
But, alas, it wasn’t meant to be and her face crumples as she begins to fall into the water
As she hits the water, the board slides out from beneath her and she’s fully submerged.
Viral video: Inevitably, the young girl falls over
In some kind of miracle move, the woman manages to keep her beer in the air and completely free of the water.
She continues to hold the beer in the air – not willing to let it go – as she bobs around in the sea.
Meanwhile the boat drives off leaving her in the wake of her disaster – albeit with a delicious beer in hand.
The video has had a whopping three million views and it’s not hard to see why.
