    Hi
    I know this may sound a bit odd. But its great!
    And no, I'm not on about your little kites, I'm on about BIG kites. I have been using them for some time with a board, and on holiday a couple of weeks back achieved some 20ft jumps!
    To give you an idea of what I'm on about, here is a youtube video [​IMG]

    My nephew does this and loves it. My husband has talked about giving it a go. He is more into powered paragliding though. That's where you have a motor and propeller on your back (backpack style) and a collapsible parachute wing. You can take off and land almost anywhere, but in fairly low wind.

    You guys and your toys! [​IMG]
