Former Prime Minister Chris Hipkins has featured in a spectacular tumble while riding a sea biscuit out on the water.

In a video posted to Instagram this evening, the leader of the Opposition — wearing a yellow lifejacket — can be seen riding a sea biscuit before losing his grip and falling.

Rather than landing with an unceremonious splash, Hipkins instead appears to roll along the water.

It was tagged “#chippieonabikkie”.

“Is that shallow where you fell?? — or, I’ve never seen anyone logroll across the surface of water before,” one person commented.

“Did you practice that move?” another added.

Hipkins’ apparently injury-free stunt was shared soon after former National Party leader Simon Bridges posted about admitted to Auckland Hospital today with a broken wrist after falling off an e-scooter.
