VIDEO: Man born with no arms or legs shreds on EFoil on Okanagan Lake

A man born with no arms and no legs continues to do what some would find impossible.

Chris Koch, who is originally from Nanton, Alta, but now resides in Kelowna, was out on Okanagan Lake on Friday attempting to learn how to use an EFoil.

In almost no time, Koch got up on the board and was speeding across the water.

Taylor Coulthard with MSLR Electric explained how impressed he was with Koch's quick learning. He noted that at some points, Koch travelled so fast that he had trouble keeping up.

Today was a really special day," said Coulthard. "Chris is by far the fastest learner I've ever taken out."

"I was really, really impressed. It's the first time that I've done a lesson where my student took off on me and I couldn't keep up to them. It was pretty fun!"
