Yacht surfing: the helicopter is following you

Have you ever wondered what would be like to go yacht surfing? A group of talented wake surfers did exactly that. Plus, they've added a helicopter.

It's a left, it's a right, you're riding faster, and it's more like surfing. Parks Bonifay, Danny Harf, Chad Sharpe, and Erik Ruck have experienced the thrills of yacht surfing.

With the helping power of 60-foot yacht "My Lizzy Too," these wakeboarders tried everything they've ever imagined. Including spectacular wipeouts, too.

Wakesurfing was born between late 1950s and early 1960s, but the sport's popularity only grew in the late 1980s with the introduction of affordable motorboats.

At an average speed of 12 miles per hour, you can try floaters, lip slides, hang five, rail grabs, cutbacks, 360 spins, and 180 shuv-its. Yacht surfing just adds that extra boost.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) approved surfing's qualification system for the Tokyo 2020.
