What is the strangest thing you have kitesurfed on?

Postby Tone » Mon Mar 04, 2013 10:55 am

As in, in replacement of a board.

Bit of Monday work fun.

I have ridden a full length scaffolding board - about 12ft in length. Went up wind really quite well and an actual Door.

I saw someone on Facebook trying to ride a sheet of ice, not sure how that went...

Hmm... Flexy, deals with chop, probably not a bunch of pop, but hey, nothing's perfect. :lol:

kiting a broken piece of ice shelf is not that unusual I do that in the winter if conditions are right

more unusual is kiting a boat when the power died back to the marina, saw doug and sean do that last year

Awhile ago Kevin Langree surfed on a suitcase bought on the local market. Looked like good fun until the suitcase sank, lol

my torso!.

Lost my board in big swell. Was about to get mothered by a wave so i started body dragging to the beach. then i caught the wave so i was body kitesurfing... then the aparent wind kicked in and i was plaining on my torso..

I outrun the wave and blasted back to shore no slower than if I was on a board!

Crazy.

A 3' square peice of ply driftwood that happened to be at the edge of the water once. Just like a skimboard without any shape.
