no it is not. While up that high, if he loses control either from his own mistake, or from a gust of wind........bad, bad results

While I don't know if I'd ever do that, Kite Boarding is entirely different than Kite Tubing. Kite Boading has been around for years.

Kite Tubing is just a wide tube and high speeds behind a boat so I agree Spencer, wouldn't do it.

Kite Boarding is closer to Parachtuing. No boat, nothing draging you around but wind and you have about the same level of control as a sky diver.

Would I go that high? No, I'm a wuss.

kite surfing can be safe. its just how you deal with it. if you have a gusty wind. and your a newbie don't go. and don't go overpowered and don't start with kiteloops/big airs. i have been kitesurfing for around 2 years its nice but also dangerous.(almost parked my head against a tree:-()
