Wakeskaters Ride On Cranberry Bog For Red Bull's Winch Sessions (VIDEO)

A new video from Red Bull offers an up-close look at the gorgeous and unique way cranberries are harvested -- with a twist.

Red Bull invited two professional wakeskaters, Ben Horan and Brian Grubb, to Bartling's Manitowish Cranberry Co. in Manitowish, Wisc. to show their skills on a cranberry-covered bog and filmed it as part of their winch-powered sports series, The Winch Sessions.

For those of you unfamiliar with winches, they're mechanical devices used to adjust the tension of a rope or wire rope. When used in extreme sports, the results are amazing to watch.

The video shows off some mind-boggling footage of the wakeskaters awash in a sea of red berries. A disclosure assures viewers that "no cranberries were wasted, or destroyed making this episode." Phew.

Watch the wakeskaters in action on the cranberry bog in the video below.
