Kiteboarders are usually able to fly for a few seconds, but the Seaglider will allow you to kite for a long time without touching the water.
It has been tested by Michel Tognini, a former European Space Agency astronaut. The Seaglider is a new invention that will deliver hours of excitement and fun to those who try it.
Have you ever thought of sailing in the sky? That is exactly what Seaglider does. You don't need additional crew to keep you at safe altitudes. You can ride all by yourself, and easily avoid sharks, too.
Pro kiteboarder Damien Leroy has already tried it. The Seaglider is a small and light structure made of wood and aluminium that makes its work in the water, while you discover the infinite pleasures of flying without an engine.
The Seaglider reminds of how paragliding can be extremely fun. The good thing is that you will be able to ride with a standard kite, all by yourself, and powered by wind.
The device was developed by Stephane Rousson. Since 2007, he has been improving the concept. It weighs only five kilograms, and it's easy to assemble. The foil system is available in two sizes and can be used in light and medium wind speed conditions.
