Kite Surfer Jumps Pier With Help From Tropical Storm Debby (Video)

kite surfer jumps over pierYou may not know much about kite surfing, but that shouldn’t prevent you from being impressed by this amazing video.

It happened a few days ago in Redington Beach, a small coastal town on the gulf coast of Florida. With the town getting got some rather high winds, thanks to Tropical Storm Debby, one intrepid kite surfer decided to put them to good use.

As you can see in the video below, this thrill-seeking kite surfer uses the wind from the storm to jump over the pier. I’m not good enough at geometry to try and guess how high into the air he got, but it’s incredible, nonetheless. And those recording the incident on camera seem to agree, judging by their cheers as he lands safely in the water on the other side of the pier.

You can watch it all unfold in the video below:
