An American man has hacked busy morning commutes, by foregoing buses and trains and taking a jet ski to work instead.

This is David Pike and he takes a jet ski to his 9-5.

That’s it. That’s the story.

David Pike avoids the rush hour crowds from New Jersey to Brooklyn and takes his jet ski to work instead. Instead of a commute that takes him one hour a half, it takes him 15 minutes.

Talking to Good Morning America, he said: "My company, New York Trolley, is in Brooklyn, and every day it would take me 90 minutes; I'd have to take the bus to the subway to the PATH to another bus and all the while I'm just looking across the harbor like, 'I just need to go there, how can I do it?'"

How? eBay.

"I went on eBay bought a jet ski -- and now it takes me 15 minutes; I just cut straight across the harbor [sic]," he explained.

The harbor's really a hive of activity. There's cruise ships, paddle boards, tourist boats, seagulls, so I feel like I'm in good company.

Pike parks his jet ski at the Brooklyn cruise terminal at a kayak dock.

And what’ll he do in the winter?

"That's when I'm gonna start swimming," he said.

Actually I have a wetsuit, so I'm planning to go through November.

Be like Pike.
