For the last 10 years, brave (crazy?!) Wanaka locals have got their wetsuits and skis out to waterski on Lake Wanaka on the shortest day of the year!

They do it for fun and to raise funds for local charities like St. Johns and this year, in picture perfect still winter conditions, talented local director, Tim Pierce, captured the action and camaraderie of the day.  You can watch his video here.
