The Best Sport You’ve Never Heard of: Kite Tubing

This might be where I draw the line. Tubing behind a boat is fun, but tubing 30 feet in the air? Sounds a little crazy. But plenty of people do it, and some have even preformed the kite-tubing barrel role (see the end of the video). Do a barrel roll!


Just hold on to the handles and pull upward to start flying. It makes for some pretty awesome videos, but also some pretty gnarly injuries. Worth the risk? Maybe not, as Wego pulled the product from the market due to a huge amount of injuries.

If you’re still willing to try it, you can buy kite tubes on eBay and similar sites. Or you can get a smaller version of a kite tube on amazon.
