Nice Landsurfing Video

(Oct 2010) These French guys take a full sailing kite, strap on an all-terrain skateboard and pull aerial stunts in an open field. Hmm, let's try jumping the basketball hoop. Or how about we get air, drop our board, slip into another one our buddy is holding, and then nail a landing...

Footage is edited from an aerial camera and a ground based camera to provide the full experience. Happy landings!

Ellis Island / Bay at Alton Ellis Island/Bay at Alton, added as Launch Spot.

(Aug 2006) The Ellis Island waterfoul refuge/bird sanctuary, which is beside Alton, is a good launch spot that Bob & Charlie have been keeping to themselves for far too long!

So now the cat is out of the bag, and hopefully more of us can get to enjoy this launch spot which is reported to typically; have more wind than any other spot in the metro area!
