I am that crazy...well you don't have to be crazy to landboard. You just have to apply a different set of rules to the activity. Punting a 6 foot high air on the land gives you a massive thrill as you must land it or there will be pain. To get the same thrill on the water you need to go 3-4 times as big to get the equivalent ring puckering feeling!... So you tone down the size and amplitude of what you do on the land. Because the land is hard there is more likelihood of minor injuries. But because you are going smaller and are suited with more armour to be prepared for the crashes I think there is less likely hood of major injury or death. Also typically you use less powered kites than kitesurfing so you are more likely to stay in control.Don Monnot wrote:Land is hard--that's why I don't go landboarding! Probably plenty of scrapes and breaks landboarding, but I don't know anybody that crazy. The stuff they pull looks insane. I much prefer water. Ice is also hard, but when you land at least you slide without road rash.
