Saul Griffith builds kites. Not ordinary kites; huge handmade beautiful things that are capable of generating hundreds of pounds of lift. I had the pleasure of flying, or rather being flown by his monster kites: big fun.

And big crazy. Check out this movie of someone flying twenty feet above the ocean with a kite and pulling a guy on a board behind him (for ballast, one presumes).
