Kite surfer Maciek Kozierski 'walks on water' | News.com.au (external - login to view)
Maciek Kozierski, 26, and his team mates spent four days at the Sea of Galilee in Israel seeking to recreate the seemingly impossible feat.
Selecting the same setting as where Jesus is meant to have famously walked on water in the Bible’s New Testament, Koziershi used his wake board to achieve the “miracle” in front of the world-famous church at Capernaum.
His plan was simple - get up to top speed on his wake board, then let go of the kite and run off the board onto the water.
However it wasn’t easy. Beside the problem of gravity, Koziershi found that when the water was calm and flat enough to run across, the wind was often not strong enough to get the acceleration required to attempt the stunt.
On the last day he managed to complete the stunt, after hitting the water over fifty times.
“We did it without any tricks or smoke and mirrors,“ Koziershi said.
Makes me wonder if Jesus had a wake board himself.... ain't such a miracle anymore, lol.
