Kite Surfer Takes Off During Hurricane Matthew Winds

October 7, 2016

"Dad, is that man going to die?"
"Yes he is, son."

This is a video news report from Florida discussing the adrenaline junkies who took
to the beach during the onset of Hurricane Matthew to wind-surf. The clip features one wind-surfer catching some huge air, which he amazingly manages to land after instead of getting pitted -- so pitted. Actually, getting pitted is a positive term used to describe surfing completely inside the barrel of a wave, so it's not actually the right expression to use here. I think killed was the word I was looking for.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to Dunc, who would have surfed that kite straight to the moon.

    Yeah, her boyfriend just died. Dude died in a hang-gliding accident! What an idiot!
    "Aaaahhh, I'm hang-gliding! Take a good picture, honey, I'm dead!"

    "don't try this at home"
    The dude is kite surfing in a hurricane.

  • Apparently someone hasn't downloaded Hurricane Kite-Surfer 3 yet on steam. It's gnar gnar, bruh.

    I have neither beach nor hurricane at my house. So... I guess I won't be listening.

    I'd like to hear the guy's reasoning on how I can get a hurricane at home tbh.

    Haha, nice one.

  • Matthew Correia

    Or an ocean on which to kite surf. Maybe if your home has a really big pool?

  • Hazakabammer

    A REEEEALLLY big pool.

    You just need the kite.
