Texas is in the throes of Tropical Storm Alberto. Most sensible folk are boarding up windows and buying all the bread and milk like it’s the end of days, right? But not the guy in the video. Oh no, this guy sees the storm rolling in and thinks, "Perfect weather for some kite surfing!"



Have you ever seen someone kite surf in a tropical storm?  The waves are huge, the wind is howling, and the sky looks like something out of one of those apocalyptic movies. And here comes this guy, strapped to a kite, like he’s Aquaman or something, ready to take on Mother Nature herself.

Average Joe

You have to admire the nerve, though. This dude’s got more guts than a butcher shop. And I’m not talking about some professional athlete here—no, this is just your average Joe who woke up and decided to go toe-to-toe with a tropical storm. It’s like he’s saying, "Alberto, you ain't got nothin' on me!"

Brave and Crazy

By the end of it, I’m thinking, "This guy is either the bravest person I've ever seen or the craziest." Probably a bit of both. But that’s the thing about people, right? We find the most insane ways to have fun. And sometimes, just sometimes, it’s the wildest, most ridiculous things that make the best stories.
