NOW our sport is legit. :lol:

Is this the first time Bart has kitesurfed? Anyway, happened to catch this on a new episode;



(yes, the video quality is crappy, but watch it anyway before Fox blocks it. ;) or wait for it on Hulu.)

Haha, yeah I was watching that and I flipped out.

Made me think of the images somebody posted a while back of some kids in some muddy village kite-skimming the mud with trashbag kites.

even though he did a jesus walk
i'm sure the scooper troopers
have a new hero to worship,

all unhooked and strap/boot-less
even on the slider
Bart is obviously way too cool for this or any on-line forum

No helmet on the rail slide, though. :nono: Is this the kind of example we want to set for our youth?!? :)

FYI - Full episode is here;
Lisa Simpson This Isn't Your Life - kite scene at 6:18 ;)
