Kite Rider, by Ryszard Wierzbicki

One of the most spectacular action sports scenes when being at Koh Phangan island are kite surfers, playing with wind and waves. Natural Kite Park is a group of few young people passionate about kitesurfing. Tale Arques, together with Paweł Tomanek and Monika Burek are running upon the waves every time when the wind is strong enough to play with. Here on the picture Tale is spotted during a sunset ride with his kite.
