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!

Riding on the Beach

Does it count when you rode on a beach and the tide was coming in a few hours afterwards, you would have been ridden 1 or 2 meters under water?

Am I the only one who feels like I've been there before? (even if I probably haven't). (It is broken English, isn't it?)

Where was it fetzenschorsch ?

Here is a couple of pics from where I also play at the beach, unfortunately I have no photo of when I rode in the see on another beach.

incredible !! now I know why I had this feeling that I've been there before !
I had been living in Saint Michel-en-Grève for 4 years !!!
(and in Lannion 4 years just before).

I left this area in 2005 to go back to Paris suburbs.

It would count, if you were idling all through high tide!

I canˋt idle nor ride that long, so I needed a tsunami to fulfill your rules.
But a tsunami would have been a UPDWC — unplanned deep water challange
