Everyone's jumping on board with this. Interesting stuff. Sounds like Slingshot is releasing a version as well:

Looking forward to seeing it on the beach and at Demo's this Summer!

1. Get your ironing board out of the cupboard

2. Stand on it

3. Hold onto an umbrella and get someone to shake you around occasionally

4. Finally get them to throw you in the bath or put you in the washing machine on medium spin.

looks like holding a bar with a kite attached would be easier.
Better yet put a MAST on the board and some STRAPS so you can get some jumps and carry a BIGGER wing !!

Whooo Hoooo !!
Wind Weapon would be back in action just like in the good old days at the Columbia Gorge

That video was filmed 30 years ago !!

The synth music and commentary in that wind weapon video is god.

Someone needs to remake that idea with new super lightweight kit.
