Brian Grubb is always looking to innovate in wakeskating and the American took the sport to new territory with his drone tow ride down the Sava Bohinjka River in Slovenia.

The New Hampshire native finally realised a dream he has had for years about taking wakeskating into the future with technology.

He teamed up with Infineon Technologies to get an electric-powered quadcopter drone built that would be able to tow him down the idyllic crystal clear Alpine river, which flows deep in the mountains of Slovenia.

The German company delivered a safe and reliable flying machine with a battery as powerful as 158 smartphones put together (1,5 kWh / 51,8 V / 30 Ah) and rotor blades stretching 80 centimetres in diameter.

The impressive 24-kilogram machine could tow Grubb for 10 minutes straight and could even lift him in the air if needed with the 38-year-old completing a world first winch-to-drone handle pass as part of the project.
