Default Incredible Lifting Experience

In this video, the guy is kiteboarding on the water. Normally when jumping,
the max is about 50'. He gets caught in a thermal and ends up a few hundred
feet up. Quite remarkable that he survived.

Wow...

I had heard of the event... it was in Hawaii at a beach near
Dillingham glider port. I always thoutht it was a tale... but it looks
like it is on film. In the back ground you can see the ridge that the
gliders use.
