I've thought about kiteboarding a lot. Just don't have the time/money for yet another time consuming money pit hobby! (of course I just bought a wake boat this year, so I'm eating my words a little).
I know I'd take to it well, as I've snowboarded and wakeboarded forever and I used to fly stunt kites. I have a buddy that let me fly his kiteboarding trainer kite and I did really well at that.
As far as spots like the one in the Video??? I live within a hour of Hood River where the video was done. So I have hte gorge, and ironically, we have NO cable parks anywhere nearby.
