Kitesurfing or Kiteboarding
Wow – this looks like fun! Kiteboarding or kitesurfing is very similar to snowboarding (without the snow) and wakeboarding (without the boat) – actually the only real similarity is they both use boards. Take the board, add a giant kite for power and lift, throw in some strong winds, and get ready for a real thrill skimming along the water’s surface, jumping the wakes, and getting some terrific “air”. Kiteboarding is the fastest growing water sport in the world because of the freedom, fun, and thrill it provides the riders.
