A scientific experiment took place at the weekend in the Manawatu.
The second annual Can We Ride It? event took place on Saturday at the Off the Loop cable wakeboard park, putting Kiwi ingenuity to the test.

From a pram, to a lawnmower, all sorts of innovative entries were made.
Check out how many of them made the journey across the water in the video above.
