This looks like an interesting activity which I saw on the beach in Kuantan. Its a combination of surfing and gliding, well hanging on to a big kite actually. Ten or fifteen years ago I might have given it a shot but where I am now, its just too much of a risk. Being out on open waters on a piece of wood hanging on to a kite does not really appeal to me. I am used to being on a big ship if I need to be out at sea. It looks like fun though.
