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.

    "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.

    Don't listen to Alinekabammer! I tried her little google trick and I didn't get ANY hurricanes at my home. NOT ONE!

    12 ounces light rum
    12 ounces dark rum
    10 ounces grenadine, or passion fruit syrup
    10 ounces fresh orange juice
    10 ounces sour mix, or fresh lime juice
    3 tablespoons superfine sugar, or more to taste
    1 large orange, cut into 1/4-inch thick slices

    Mix all the ingredients in a tall pitcher or large pot and stir to dissolve the sugar. Pour into a punch bowl and add the ice cubes and orange segments. Serve in tall glasses over ice with straws.

    Haha, nice one.

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

  • Hazakabammer

    A REEEEALLLY big pool.

  • Bling Nye

    You just need the kite.
