Yeah, I forgot to take a picture of the kite they were using, but it was a bit like this one only blue.


Okay, I've been corrected on some technical details -- they are apparently using a Blade III:

btw, the kite surf kite is quite different to the Blade III we use. A
blade is twin skinned witha mesh front and made for traction, while a
kite surf kite has one layer, an airbag to keep its shape and keep it
afloat, and isn't really what you'd use on land at all - it collapses as
it flys overhead too easily, and you'd drop like a rock.
