Kite Surfing In A Tropical Storm

All day, CNN has been featuring a video clip of a man who strapped himself into kite surfing apparatus on some Florida beach during tropical storm Faye. One 60 mph gust came along, picked him up, slammed him into the beach a couple of times, picked him up again, carried him across an adjacent parking lot, and slammed him into a wall.

I can’t imagine WHAT this guy was thinking. What would possess someone to strap themselves into a kite during a tropical storm? Maybe it’s the ultimate adrenaline rush. Just seems pretty senseless to me. Friends say the guy is expected to make a full recovery. I hope so. But I’ll bet his kite surfing days are at an end.
