As you surf languidly through the tranquil sea waters, the surf lapping gently at your feet, you watch a majestic kite of many colours rise into the air and billow out like a giant sky jellyfish. Bang! All of a sudden you are propelled through the air like a human shuttlecock, the power of the wind shooting you through the sky in a great rush of adrenaline as you soar upwards at speeds of 70kph. This is kitesurfing, the bastard child of wakeboarding, windsurfing, surfing, paragliding, and gymnastics and now you can try it within a few hours drive of Phnom Penh.
