i have not seen any wave kiting (or tow in surfing) that even comes close. I never thought I would say this but I might need to learn to windsurf

Thanks Peter! No better way to spend a "no wind" day than to watch that. True waterman.

Amazing footage... he comments that he's had around 10 sessions like that in 20yrs so that session was definitely special.
