Lifting off over a churning wave, the wind tugs at the parachute of a kitesurfer off the shores of Stoney Beach. At Halifax Kitesurfing, an instructor with more than 3,000 hours of experience educates students on the sport, an exhilarating mash-up of wakeboarding, windsurfing, and soaring through the air.
