Just when you thought you’d seen everything there is to see when it comes to offroading, you stumble upon this. It’s called, Hydroplaning and it’s huge in places like Hella, Iceland which is home to The Formula Off-Road Hydroplaning Competition.
The idea is to pick up enough speed in advance to make it across the surface of the water using jeeps, off-road buggies, motorcycles and even snowmobiles. It’s true that the water is not super deep, but when you do it wrong you will sink.
This is more than just a competition where vehicles “walk” on water, it’s also a chance for people to give back to the community since all of the proceeds from the event goes to the Icelandic rescue teams. It a good time for a good cause. Sounds to me like everyone wins.
