Austrian stuntman demonstrates extreme Vespa waterskiing

This was the moment stuntman Guenter Schachermayr waterskied on a Vespa scooter down the Danube in Wallsee on July 21.

Video shows the stuntman on his aquatic designed scooter tackling the water while being pulled by a 420 horsepower boat.

He reached speeds of 60kph but did encounter a problem when 60 seconds into one of his attempts, he crashes.

"I had to stop after that because I suffered bruises," explains Schachermayr.

The endeavour is one of Schachermayr's many world-record efforts.
