    I normally get towed around by boats to stay on top of the water but not tried the waves yet, something I want to have a go at though. Was watching a surf program/film on TV the other night about river surfing in Germany and then around the world which looked awesome dude :)

    Sounds like a plan! The dilemma is always there tho, sunny day, roof down and out on the road or go out on the water :D

    I've never sailed or flown kites so i need to learn that side of things. I'm used to having a 6litre V8 dragging me round rather than mother nature :)

    Mother nature can easily drag you around if you so desire :D

    Zeddy drive, fun on the water, zeddy drive home - perfect day out!

    I would have thought the x-cat would give you an adrenaline rush, it will give you 2.5g on a turn. How much quicker would you want to turn on a sixpence than that. We do lose the odd participant overboard, spinning out like a star fish =)) Its not always good for the photographer (me) to keep the camera from shaking though =))

    the x-cat sounds similar to the ski boats, taking them to about 40mph and then turning them in their own length ;) Although i wouldn't want to lose anyone out of one of those with spinning props about so only done in controlled conditions! :)

    Do you use Go Pro cameras or alike? A friend of mine put together a nice video of him in Hawaii a little while ago using a go pro. There's another one called the contour which is more expensive but has more features which also looks pretty good.

    Nobody ever takes me much, they are usually doing the daft dangerous stuff keeping me entertained, im the one usually with the camera anyway.

    Here is the zapcat in action, but i dont pilot it at these speeds, only now and again.
