In good conditions an advanced pilot can launch 20-40 feet above the water and soar for up to seven seconds. One of the rushes of the sport is in catching the air and flying. With kiteboarding, you're hanging for football field lengths in the air. It is such a kick because you can spin, flip or just fly.
