Hydrofoil kiteboarding Rez Bay

I  thought I was watching an expert kiteboarder and his swooping red and black kite zip across the white-capped waves on Resurrection Bay. Then he sailed closer and I saw that he was actually riding above the water, slicing through the waves on top of a skinny black blade like a knife through butter. What an amazing idea!

When I got home, I Googled it. “Foilboarding, kite foiling, hydrofoil kiteboarding, foil kiteboarding. Actually, you can call it many names, but it all leads to the same discipline. Riding a kite with a hydrofoil board under your feet.” https://www.surfertoday.com/kiteboarding/9868-the-bright-and-dark-sides-of-kite-foilboarding

Whatever it is called, it’s amazing to watch, and looks like a blast! Thanks for the show, Benjamin! There’s always something interesting to see and do in Seward!
