…in Venice at least. While we're on mainstream coverage of winching, this was recently brought to my attention. Seems the legendary Venice Square has flooded a few times recently, and a local Italian Red Bull rider (if he's not, he should be) decided to go out and take care of business before the waters subsided. (Yes we know he is actually wakeboarding.) According to this article he was quickly arrested, but at least it made for a good YouTube video. 


So kids, if you were planning on bringing your winch on that family vacation to Venice, you might want to rethink that.
