I was innocently googling for a “total wipeout” this morning when I stumbled across this cheerful little vignette of a Mr Wu coming a cropper on British TV.
That’s all you’re getting by way of a post from me on this tropical scorcher of a day. The Bounceologist is off to the beach.

Here’s another amazing product that skips across the water.
Amazing, inspirational and not entirely believable…. These guys are taking the defiance of physics to a whole other level – Liquid Mountaineering.
All it takes is belief, determination and a poncy pair of shoes.
The Bounceologist is going to try this on his trip to the pool this afternoon.
I’m sure I can achieve the same effect with plastic bags on my feet. Now, if I can just work up enough speed…
The Water Games is the fourth national comprehensive sports even in China. This game takes place every 4 years like the Olympic Games.
At its first time, from 28th August to 8th September in 2007 only several water sports such as rowing, canoeing, sailing, motor boats, water skiing, and fin swimming were included. But all in all there were about 3300 people attended in this game.
Something for you budding James Camerons and YouTube fiends out there. We’ve launched the Waboba Asia Video Competition.
The first prize is a weekend at one of Sanya’s five-star resorts. The prize includes flights to and from Sanya from anywhere in Asia, plus two nights in a five-star hotel, plus 5,000 RMB in cash.
To enter the competition, all you have to do is shoot a video that has a Waboba ball in it somewhere, preferably with it bouncing on water.
Feeling inspired? Maybe you think you could do better than Nate and Brendan’s video for the Surf and Skate.
If you’re nowhere near the sea, not to worry. The ball bounces just as well in swimming pools, fountains and park lakes.
