The Explorer: water sports edition
From the depths of Florida to the arctic circle, it's all about extreme water sports on The Explorer!
1) FLORIDA: There are many ways to explore Florida's brackish backwaters, but boardmonsters do it with the most style. Shooting all their video on a GoPro HD, these waterbug-nimble boardmonsters mix air and water when they wake-board, wake-skate, and wake-surf. Grinding, sliding, weaving and twisting, these dudes make riding hard wood and water look like a walk in the park.

2) BRAZIL: The Redbull Riders experience breakneck kiteboarding as they slide down a mountain of salt! It's a unique challenge for these champion Brazilian boarders, but they act like it's as easy as flying a kite.

3) NORWAY: In the arctic circle, surfermag.com made a video called "Distant Shores." In the video, the surfers grit their teeth and give it their all, taking on huge, frigid waves and cold so harsh it would send Santa running for his igloo. 30mph winds and the sleet pelting like a thousand needles, they "hang ten" when it's ten degrees!
