Scuttlebutt: Video of the Week

(October 1, 2010) Ever wonder who the first person was to look at a cow and say, I'll just squeeze those dangly things and drink whatever comes out? Or how about the first person to see an egg come from a chicken's butt and think, I'll bet that would be good to eat? Perhaps they were the same kind of people that thought it would be neat combine kite sailing and skateboarding: kite skating.

They say curiosity killed the cat, so you can imagine what it must be like to take a full sailing kite, strap on an all-terrain skateboard and pull aerial stunts in an open field. Hmm, let's try jumping the basketball hoop. Or how about we get air, drop our board, slip into another one our buddy is holding, and then nail a landing.

Footage is edited from an aerial camera and a ground based camera to provide the full experience. Happy landings!
