Kite Surfing

A few weeks ago while at the beach in Florida I saw two guys "Kite Surfing". I've never seen or even heard about this sport before. It is basically snowboarding on water with the power of a giant kite. It pulls you pretty hard and lets you do extremely high jumps.

I was talking to a friend about it last night. Apparently you can take lessons and get rentals in Boston for a few hundred dollars. I have to try it this summer!

Check out this video:



Unfortunately, there have been a few terrible accidents. Check out this video of a guy being pulled out of the water and into the side of a building!
