Here's the article from the TNT Magazine with this desceiption:
Daredevil Chuck Patterson found a novel way to tackle the waves off the coast of Hawaii – on skis!
It looks like another big wave riding hero but look a little closer and you can see that the man at bottom of the wall of water is not on a board but skis. Look a little closer still and the mental wave rider has two ski poles in his hands as well.
Chuck is a ‘driven by his passion for snow’. He grew up skiing in Lake Tahoe California as a young man but has made the transition to water, now.
He obviously gets a little snow-sick for the slopes though and decided to give himself a little reminder as his ski-surf YouTube video above shows.
Surfing the wave on skis! Hmm, I never thought that can be done. Now how about ski with a surfing board? Why not? Anything is possible!!!
