Congratulations to Christopher Dens of Brainerd who set a new world record for water skiing on 11-foot stilts (including the skier the total height is 17-feet) on July 12, 2020. Visit Brainerd reports Dens is a local dentist and one of the founders of the Brainerd Ski Loons Water Ski Show Team. He’s been working on this stilt setup for a few years and is excited to incorporate it into next summer’s water ski shows, unfortunately this season’s shows were canceled due to COVID-19. Is your dentist this rad….I don’t think so!
