Mark Zuckerberg shared footage from a recent wakeboarding excursion to Instagram Reels Saturday, featuring the clip of him sailing through the waves on Glass Animals’ “Heat Waves” – wow, Zuck, very meta indeed!
Weaving in the boat’s wake throughout the clip, the Meta CEO captioned the post “Some Saturday turns.”
The tech juggernaut initially clings to a rope attached to the craft pulling it across the surface of the water, gaining momentum until it finally drops the rope and continues, moving forward alone.
Lasting just under a minute, the video ends with the Facebook founder still sliding triumphantly, his speed barely diminishing as he maintains his balance on the board – and thereby denying viewers of Reel to see it gradually slow down enough to dump its billionaire cargo into the surrounding lake.
The location – similar in appearance to the backdrop of a video published on July 4, 2021 showing Zuckerberg on an electronic surfboard and waving an American flag – is believed to be Lake Tahoe, on which the ruler bought a large estate in 2018.
Zuckerberg embarked on the water ride after battling through another tense week at Meta, which, unlike his many perfectly executed “turns” as captured on his last wakeboarding spree, has been falling apart lately, his actions plunging more than 52% since the start of the year, according to the Washington Post.
