Here is my rant:
In that kind of weather you stay home and chill.
The fact that he didn't get hurt in any way does by far not prove that it is pretty wreckless to go out in those conditions.

Wreckless? Not necessarily. Depends on the spot really and a bunch of other stuff. Different strokes for different folks.

Awesome demonstration of skill and control. Nice work.

There is a safety section on this forum. All you safety police should feel free to post your concerns in that section. Leave the kitesurfing section for people who want to see big jumps, big tricks and other dangerous behavior. Maybe consider taking up golf or chess.

Again, great video. It's cool to see that kind of talent.
