Wind. Water. Adrenaline. Three words that describe Kite Boarding to a T. Imagine strapping yourself to a massive parachute, wading out into churning water, and then willingly catching the wind to propel yourself 20-40 miles/hour along the surface of the water on a small wake board. If you think this sounds difficult, exhausting, and downright fun, you are right! kiteboarding is the sport you get into once you've mastered all other sports. The sport requires the athlete to use elements from snowboarding, windsurfing, wake boarding, surfing, paragliding, skateboarding, and sailing, If you like a challenge then this extreme sport is definitely for you. If you aren't sure where to start visit my friends at Elite Watersports in St.Petersburg, Florida. They can take you through the learning stages to have you riding the surf before you know it. This a great gift idea for an adrenaline junky or even the adventurous soul. At the very least go watch some of these athletes conquer the wind and water - It is exhilarating just to watch!
