Offbeat Video

By Randal Coombs 


A dare devil has been caught kite surfing through the intense winds of Hurricane Florence. 

Erin Callum filmed the footage which was taken at Jennette’s Pier in Nags Head, North Carolina, on September 13. 

The kite surfer in the video wasn’t fazed by Hurricane Florence which was making its way towards the coast.

Erin couldn’t believe anyone would attempt to enter the raging ocean but she watched in amazement. 

She added: “They were clearly professionals and handled the 20-30 mph winds with ease. 

“It only lasted 10-15 minutes before he came out. It had started lightening while he was kite surfing and even he was not that crazy I guess. 

“It was a great show that we just happened to be there at the right time. I am not sure how high he was going or the wave heights but it amazed me how at times he would disappear behind the waves so they were at least 5ft tall. 

“I later found out after posting the video found out the guy who was kite surfing was Dimitri Maramenides.

“My hat goes off to him, the ocean was powerful and he didn’t hesitate riding the beast!”
