the wave

Wave riding at the extreme. yes he used a kite to get in and out. I think that is more than using a jet ski Wave ridingWave riding (kitesurfing) in waves is a style that combines kiteboarding with surfing. Learning to kitesurf big waves and to use a directional board requires a whole new range of skills and techniques that can make an accomplished flat water kiter feel like a beginner again.Most kitesurfers use a directional board with enough flotation and good turning characteristics to surf the wave. Many kiters use a board that can be used for regular surfing too (with the foot straps removed).Wave riding is quite different from flat water kitesurfing where the wind always powers you and your board. You can also apply flat water style to riding waves by using the kite as your primary means of propulsion.However, when you kitesurf big waves, you can transition from wind power to surfing using the power of the wave. The kite becomes a method of getting into position for a big wave similar to a tow-in by a jet ski. Once in position, the power of the wave takes over and you surf it as you would without the kite.To do this you need to position and fly your kite "down the line" and follow it so that it ceases pulling you while it stays flying. When you are out there, have selected wave and are about to catch it, do a quick 3 point check:Front foot locatedRear foot locatedKnees bentIt is well worth mastering toeside riding upwind for wave riding, so you can tack in both directions without switching your feet on the board. This allows you to remain in your preferred stance and approach and catch waves without switching your feet or riding "goofy" in one direction.Practice releasing all your safety releases to ensure you can release the kite completely quickly and easily. Do a release check before you get on the water.

Black Friday is the Friday following Thanksgiving Day in the United States (the fourth Thursday of November). Since the early 2000s, it has been regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season in the US, and most major retailers open very early (and more recently during overnight hours) and offer promotional sales. Black Friday is not an official holiday, but California and some other states observe "The Day After Thanksgiving" as a holiday for state government employees, sometimes in lieu of another federal holiday such as Columbus Day.[1] Many non-retail employees and schools have both Thanksgiving and the following Friday off, which, along with the following regular weekend, makes it a four-day weekend, thereby increasing the number of potential shoppers. It has routinely been the busiest shopping day of the year since 2005,[2]although news reports, which at that time were inaccurate,[3] have described it as the busiest shopping day of the year for a much longer period of time.[4] Similar stories resurface year upon year at this time, portraying hysteria and shortage of stock, creating a state of positive feedback.

In 2014, $50.9 billion was spent during the 4-day Black Friday weekend, down 11% from the previous year. While approximately 133 million U.S. consumers shopped during the same period, down 5.2% from last year's 141 million.
