We continue to take a look at some fun things to do off of Kailua Beach but looking at this kitesurfer.  He was one of many people using these huge kites to pull them across the bay.   Kitesurfing goes back to the 1980s but didn’t gain popularity until about 10 years go.  It is also sometimes referred to as kiteboarding or in Europe flysurfing.  With the large kite and a good wind for propulsion the kitesurfer is able to reach high speeds and if good enough perform exhilarating stunts.  Kailua Bay is a good place to learn but if you do please be extra careful of the other people in the water.
