  • Description

    Kite flying at Cypress Gardens, Florida, USA, Feb 16. But this was not the usual type of kite flying. The kite flier holding the trailing rope did not have his feet on the ground, far from it. This sport on water skies can lift a man as much as 100 feet in the air.

    It may be an exhilarating experience but a breath of wind makes the difference between a perfect two-point landing and a flop. The skier here went higher than his kite - in error, plunged into the sea, climbed out and braved a second flight.
