Let’s go surf a kite
Today, while out sailing on the bay (ok, riding on a sailboat as I cannot sail myself), I came across some kite surfers. I have never seen this sport before, so I was facinated. These guys are strapped into what looks like a cross between a surf board and a snowboard, and then hold onto a parachute-looking kite. And they book it! They were sailing as fast as us on our boat, with the added excitement of occasionally flying up into the air and flipping around. They seemed to notice that we were sailing next to them to check them out and take pictures, because they came up right by the boat and did some tricks for the camera and the cheering audience.
