Winkler said that when he was younger, he traveled from the landlocked country of Austria to the French surfing city of Biarritz and purchased a surfboard completely on impulse.
“I had no idea about surfing; I just wanted to stand on a wave for once in my life,” Winkler said in the video posted two weeks ago. “And I got hooked.”
So, after a recent dump in the Austrian backcountry, Winkler decided to paddle out into the fresh Austrian powder.
Winkler, who is a passionate Back to the Future fan, wrote that the experience was as close to replicating the movie’s famed hoverboarding scenes as he had ever experienced.
“Probably comes pretty close to a hover board,” Winkler wrote about the video on his Facebook page. “Marty, thanks for the inspiration.”
