Greek extreme wakeboarder Nikola Plytas hitched a ride behind the Italian America’s Cup challenger Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli’s LEQ12 test boat on the waters of Cagliari, Sardinia. For an hour and a half of varying weather scenarios, Plytas demonstrated incredible technique as he was towed by the Luna Rossa prototype on a custom wakeboard, concentrating on grip and exploiting centrifugal force to achieve higher speeds.

“Experiencing the incredible speed behind the @lunarossachallenge prototype was a truly unique adventure. Thank you @prada for this unforgettable opportunity,” said Plytas on Instagram.
