    Impressive. I'll bet it's loads of fun if he misjudges and digs the front of that board into the sand....

    Did you notice how he reconfigures the kite just before touchdown on the water-you said it: impressive!

    Wonderful, I love it! What a great control of the kite (sail? wing? paraglider?) that guy has, and what precision! Thanks for the great video, Doug! :)

    That reminds me of an incredible thing called Wingsuit Base Jumping.

    I'm really only on boat forums, so I don't have anywhere to say, "hey, check this out!"

    In the same spirit as the first YouTube video, here are guys jumping off mountains and FLYING to the bottom!
