Skater Channels His Inner Mary Poppins and Uses Umbrella to Harness Wind Power

Quebec native David Freiheit found out that umbrellas are not just useful on rainy days but also on windy ones, too. He used one to harness wind power as he skated across Mississquoi Bay.

As seen in this video, Freiheit manages to pick up a decent speed with the wind at his back. This video also includes a glimpse of a failed earlier attempt with a garden umbrella, which promptly collapses as Freiheit opens it. Credit: Viva Frei via Storyful
