It’s that time of year when we’re enjoying the summer, but also looking forward to the winter — and professional freeskier Chuck Patterson might have the right idea.

The “professional waterman” with a passion for snow made this film of skiing the waves in Hawaii for an ad for German ski fashion company Bogner.

Chuck “The Ripper” Patterson, as he is known, is a professional skier, surfer, kite surfer and stand-up paddleboarder. He’s been perfecting the art of wave skiing for several years now.

“It’s kind of weird putting on ski boots while watching waves,” he says on his blog, but adds: “You can really gouge turns just like in the snow.”

The advert was released last month and is already a social media sensation — anyone tempted to have a go?
