People have been harnessing the wind to power land and water vessels for centuries.
Power Kiters have been utilizing the wind for years. Unlike snowmobiles, jet skis and dirt bikes, power kiting is an environmentally friendly sport. It has a neutral footprint, doesn’t need gas and doesn’t produce any noise.
People aren’t irritated by any engine noises and the user gets the thrill of zooming across grass, ice, snow, and water at high speeds. Although this unusual sport isn’t well known, those who participate in it say they are hooked for life. Wind is free, meaning there is no ongoing cost for these adrenaline seekers.
