KiteBoarding or Kitesurfing
is one of my passions. It's really quite amazing the
speed and air you can get with just a little wind. For
those unfamiliar with the sport, you use a VERY large kite. The kite generates
enough power to ski or surf behind. It takes quite a bit of practice to
learn how to do this sport safely. My analogy is that kiteboarding
is like wakeboarding and driving the boat at the same time. If you're not
careful, the kite can get out of control and land you into the rocks, the
trees or a parking lot. As they say "kiting can be a real drag", but if
this is one of the most awesome sports in the world.
