Local Dentist Sets World Record


Although the Brainerd Ski Loons water ski team has been sidelined by the pandemic, one member of the club decided to try something very special here in the lakes area this summer.

Dr. Chris Dens, Brainerd Lakes Area dentist and President of the Brainerd Ski Loons recently set  a new world record for skiing on stilt skis! The 11 feet tall stilt skis put his head about 17 feet in the air. The record was set on Sunday, July 12 in Brainerd.

The video says it all 

Congratulations to Dr. Chris Dens! Something tells me we might see this in a Ski Loons show next year.
