Vlogger Casey Neistat, who’s known for tackling wonderfully unusual projects, decided to escape the heat and celebrate the July 4th Independence Day holiday by surfing the infamously questionable waters of New York City’s East River. Neistat and collaborator Dan Mace initially braved the waters on a surfboard, but after being told by police that they couldn’t swim in the river, they opted instead to use a speedboat (and then a drone) to pull them along on their boards. While not swimming, the group spent plenty of time in the water nonetheless.
