The Discovery TV series Catchin Air is headed to Alaska recently for an episode of wakeboarding and kiteboarding on a ice field. The relatively new series focuses on an up-and-coming extreme sport called kiteboarding, which is basically wakeboarding, paragliding and windsurfing. Each episode features a different location and is cast with a variety of passionate and talented extreme sports enthusiasts. The sport is kind of complicated, so each kiteboarder has their own set of techniques that differs slightly from another, giving the show a lot of variety.
The teaser video features Andy Hurdman wakeboarding on an ice field while the crew waits for the wind to pick up. The breathtaking clip captures the extraordinary landscape surrounding the icy Alaskan lake and showcases only a little of what these athletes have to offer.
