“I know snowkiting, and this my friend is no snowkiting!”
Posted by direwolff on December 8, 2006
A dear friend just sent me a link to a YouTube video under the title of snowkiting. Let me be the first to clear up any misconceptions here, this is *NOT* snowkiting, it’s MUCH sicker!!! It’s a group of French guys that went heli-skiing off the top of the Eiger with parasails. You’ve got to see it to believe it. All I want to know is, “where do we sign up?!” Check it out…
Now if this isn’t SENDING IT, I don’t know what is :) Leave it to the French to come up with the next more extreme version of the sport. For those of you not aware of it, kitesurfing was a French invention. Guess they felt it was time to go to the next level.
