Deep Water Challenge

Riding after the rain three days ago gave me the idea for a special challenge:

What is the deepest water you can ride through? I have no proof for my claim since there is no video of it, but my puddle was about 8 inches (20 cm) deep. I know that's not much but it can be considered a starting point.

Here are the rules:
1. video documentation of the ride
2. the ride has to start and end outside the water
3. no breathing apparatus allowed
4. the deepest point reached has to be measured

I think some interesting videos can come from this challenge.
Looking forward to your contributions. Older videos should be allowed, if they make an estimate of water depth possible.

Doesn't meet your rules but worth mentioning Ashrita Furman of course.

Maybe there should be two categories: non-giraffe-unicycles and giraffes. Would be interesting to see someone ride a giraffe through 20-foot deep water!
