VIDEO: Tied up in 50 knots

During one of the strongest storms of the year, professional kitesurfer Kevin Langeree decided to be a bit unreasonable.

With 50-plus knots of wind, Langeree took to the water for an urban kiteboard session in the busy port of Amsterdam, Netherlands, on March 31.

The goal: reach Amsterdam Central Station and not get busted by the police along the way. Additional hazards: oil tankers, ferries, and unpredictable winds as he flies past the ships, showing off for their crews.

This video clearly warrants the “don’t try this” disclaimer, but see how he does.
