From the Wikipedia article on kitesurfing:
"Kite surfing, also known as kitesurfing, fly surfing, and kiteboarding, involves using a power kite to pull the rider through the water on a small surfboard, a wakeboard, or a kiteboard.

A kitesurfer stands on a board with foot-straps or bindings, and uses the power of a large controllable kite to propel himself and the board across the water. However, this simplicity also makes kitesurfing challenging. Your body is the only connection between the kite and the board and you have to control them both at the same time: piloting the kite in the sky, and steering the board on the water."

Has anyone [and by anyone I mean the three other members of this community, if you happen to read this. (C'mon guys we need more members!)] ever tried kitesurfing? It sounds pretty neat to me. I wakeboard, and I can fly a kite, but both at the same time? Might be a tad bit difficult.
Ehh, I'll probably never get around to trying it, but still... I thought it was kind of interesting.

There's enough potential damage with just me and a kite, without adding in water or wheels or anything like that :P
