He hoops the rope around his elbow while he stands on the wakeboard and puts on a graduation gown.

He then uses both hands to put the graduation cap on as he keeps the rope around his arm.

Andrew said: ‘I wasn’t expecting to get access to the wakeboard, but we were lucky enough to befriend people with nice boats and I capitalised on my opportunity.

‘It was quite challenging to put the cap and gown on and, being my first time wakesurfing, it was a struggle to stay on the wake without the rope.’ 

The video was posted on TikTok on July 8 and has received 2.2 million views and more than 325,000 likes.
