“DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!
At this episode, we will do a crazy tow up in Rio de Janeiro. We will use a jet skit to tow us up about 30 meters high, a kind of parasail.
It’s a very dangerous thing to do, because if any part of your kite material breaks, you will fall down hitting the water as if it were concrete causing risk of serious injuries and even death.
Kiteboarding gear was not made for this kind of stunt.
After the tow up we will have an amazing kite session at K-08 Club, in Barra da Tijuca, the best spot and kite spot in the whole city in my opinion!”
