Idens......I have been building a wooden dinghy with a place to mount the kite in the center and a foot pedal steering system. I am convinced that a kite boat would be VERY fast because the kites are 75-100 feet above the surface turbulence of the wind/water. If i don't drown i will let you know how it works this summer . Some archeologists belive the Egyptians used huge kites to move and place the stones when building the pyramids...they have even found some of the material from them.
Kitesurfing is much harder than it looks.......imagine falling, having one of the lines wrap around your leg, then having the kite fly.....it would sever your leg and then drag you to your demise. The force behind them is tremendous but oh so scary!!!!!!

Apparently so many people are interested that they swamped the Sailing Anarchy site--I can't get on.

Southern...You need to come down tothe outerbanks of NC for some real kite surfing...and warmer water!! I went to skooll (g) in VT a few decades back and Stowe is a great hill but damn cold.

As to the DS's ...they must love the pain...just keep coming back for more! Just be kind to your fellow cruisers and anchor downwind eh?

Cam...that's were i learned. When i started it was the only place besides Hawaii that you could take classes. We were in Avon that summer. It was the same summer the two Russian tourists were attacked by sharks. I had been swimming in the same spot the week before the attack. I have been going to the Outher Banks to windsurf w/my father since i was a kid! I have tried to get my wife to move there...or Burlington....or to live on the boat for a while. No luck...so for now i'm landlocked and still racking up miles on the Camaro. You should see the faces on the skiers when i pull up, the car burbling away with it's flowmaster exhaust....totally out of place in the snow except for the fact that it has heavy duty studded truck tires on it. I can drive in conditions that would have most people sliding around in their SUV's.

And in Tonga dogs may be confiscated and destroyed. But you probably don't want to go there either.
