Designer Etay Amir wanted to give paraplegics the ability to engage in sports and become mobile while not worrying about their personal safety. He created the ‘Soul’ kite to do just that.

The Soul kite is a device that allows the physically challenged to go kite surfing while staying safe and secure. It gives them the opportunity to experience the thrill and excitement of water sports by enhancing their "free movement on the water."

The Soul kite is also wind-powered and requires a minimal amount of movement. Stats for Paraplegic Kite Surfing Trending: Older & Mild
