One of the men caught on camera illegally "skimming" on Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire over the weekend is speaking out.
Patrick Keefer, 32, said he and his driver, 28-year-old Jory Vachon, turned themselves in to Laconia police.
Video shows two people taking a snowmobile over open water, referred to as "skimming," pulling a barefoot water skier, who Keefer says is him.

"Skimming" is illegal in New Hampshire.
Keefer said he did take safety precautions and had a rescue team nearby. He said he was also a college division one skier.
Both Keefer and Vachon now face steep fines. Vachon is charged with disorderly conduct and skimming, and Keefer is charged with disorderly conduct.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help the pair from Meredith cover the costs.
