Default Power Kiting

Don't know if you've seen my avatar, and if you have you might be thinking 'What the hell is that?' Well, its a kite, and no, not one of the little ones. I'm on about big kites. Here is a vid I made of my friends:

It's really exciting, and gives you a huge adrenline rush. Also, the feeling of learning a new trick is awesome, or knowing you've just gone 30ft (thats my highest) and come back down safely, all by the power of wind, is just fantastic

Wow! Cool vid! I've heard about this sport before but this is the first time I've seen it. I wish I was more athletic as it does look like a lot of fun.

To be honest, anyone can do it, purely due to the range of sizes in the kites, and this means varying power. You can go in buggies as well, which are three wheelers that you sit in, those are a right laugh. You can also board on snow or water. It's awesome, give it a try
