That is cool. I love how he's using ski poles. Maybe he needs special water baskets - or outriggers.

So what are the skis? They look thick.

 Wonder what his DIN is. I wouldn't want to be out in the ocean in a pair of ski boots with no skis attached to them.

There is a link to Starr Surf Skis on the article page.

This is awesome!  So now the ski bums would not have to travel half way around the world chasing winter ;-)  BTW, the marketing possibilities are endless:

 

Hey, skiing and beach babes are not mutually exclusive!!!   

 

Your girlfriend hates winter?  No problem... Ski-Surf to the rescue!

 Ok, couldn't find any info on the bindings on their page.

The company is in Colchester, Vermont!

(I wonder if Skye is involved)

Here's a few images:

 Chuck Patterson is surf skiing's most hard-charging pioneer. He rolled into 2011 with the latest version of our Rocket skis — hand-crafted in conjunction with McDermott Shapes of Maine — and went big during a January swell at the fabled Jaws break in Maui

 Winter surfing in New Hampshire. (The state has all of 12 miles of coastline. And a few of those is a Navy Base) is supposed to be really good if you can hack it.

You don't want to kite-ski Champlain?    I do.

Wait a sec...

 

The new use for fat, reverse/reverse skis is water skiing?

Champ—An American Legend or a Real Live Lake Monster?

Champ is a member of the elite group of creatures who share a common bond classed as cryptozoological animals. These creatures include dragons, unicorns, Pegasus, Sasquatch, Yeti, and of course, Champ's "cousin", the Loch Ness Monster. The single trait they all have in common is that their existence on earth has never been satisfactorily proven or conclusively disproven.

 Still, over 300 sightings!
