  Daredevil dog takes up water-skiing
Updated 23 July 2003, 18.14
Surfing dog
Part-X the Jack Russell has nerves of steel.

After having a go at cliff-jumping, surfing, abseiling and kayaking, the daredevil dog has taken up water skiing!

Part-X lives with his owner JP Eatock in Falmouth, Cornwall.

Surfing dog

The terrier first showed an interest in extreme sports five years ago, when he leaped on JP's surfboard.

"Whenever we go near moving water, Part-X gets really, really excited," said JP.

Showing off his skills

"He even tries to bite the waves as we surf."

Part-X will soon be showing off his skills on a TV show called Dogs With Jobs.

He'll also be catching a few waves at Newquay Surf Festival this weekend.
