The missing kite surfer

S.O.S 4 kites and only 3 surfers

Kite surfing or kite boarding is a surface water sport that uses the wind to pull a rider through the water on a small surfboard or a kite board. Generally kite boarding refers to a style of riding known as freestyle or wake-style, whereas kite surfing is more "wave-riding" oriented. These two styles usually require different boards and specific performance kites.
The sport is becoming safer due to innovations in kite design, safety release systems, and instructions. Riding styles have evolved to suit riders and conditions, such as wake style, wave riding, freestyle, free ride, jumping, and cruising.
