Kiteboarding Hurricane Irene



While the vast majority of the Eastern seabord was riding out Hurricane Irene, pro kiteboarders Dale Slear and Hunter Stunzi decided to ride her. Check this incredible video of Dale or Hunter — we have no idea who — launching from the surf to the skies above Bald Head Island, North Carolina on August 26, the day the ferocious ‘cane came sweeping ashore. The camera captures wind gusts in the range of 60 mph – forceful enough to uproot trees, peel siding off a house, or as you see here, sling a fearless kiteboarder higher than we’ve ever seen before.
