When life gives you a flooded river — you shred it.

The Red Cedar overflowing its banks is something Michigan State University students see regularly, but someone being pulled behind a moped on a wakeboard is relatively new.

Sara Condra and her colleagues take advantage of the heavy rains last week in East Lansing to do a couple wakeboard runs along the swollen banks of the river that runs through MSU campus.

Condra clad in a wetsuit traverses the icy water on her wakeboard pulling off several surface 180s on a short stretch of the river between trees. She hangs on to the tow rope connected to a moped driving on a nearby sidewalk.

The Hartland, Michigan native is the women’s MSU Waterski and Wakeboarding Team captain as confirmed in a Tweet from the team’s account.

Another clip posted to Condra’s Instagram account shows her taking turns on the run.
