WATCH: Passing Ship Sends Ice Wake at Skaters

I don’t know about you but this video gives me the heebie jeebies.

As you can tell from the title, a group of ice skaters are, well, skating when a passing ship sends its wake towards the them, yet somehow the ice just rolls with the waves and manages not to crack or break.

Apparently this footage was filmed in Finland so I don’t know how normal this kind of ice skating is, but the sound alone is too eerie for my comfort level.

You can see the passing ship in the video below. It’s the Finnish Navy minelayer Uusimaa.

These videos are about a year old but are just picking up views now after they were posted to Reddit.
