Turnagain Arm

An unknown floatplane pilot has rescued a kitesurfer spotted drifting in Turnagain Arm, Alaska, according to the Anchorage Fire Department.

Apparently, a kitesurfer was found in distress offshore from McHugh Creek, at 17h15, Monday. As the kite was in the water, the troubled kitesurfer started waving to get attention.

When state troopers and firefighters found out that the tide wouldn't let them get a boat in the water, a mysterious floatplane landed nearby and rescued the troubled kiteboarder.

Turnagain Arm is known for its famous bore tide that occurs just outside Anchorage. It climbs up to 6–10 feet tall and can reach speeds of 10 to 15 miles per hour.

Turnagain Arm's Bore Tide is one of the biggest in the world.

Whether you think of a kite as a wing or a sail, you want it to be lightweight, resistant, waterproof, but also stiff and flexible at the same time, so that they could respond to all flight requests.
