Kitesurfer jumps Brighton Pier


Kitesurfing is ace. Not that we've tried it. We just like the idea of bodging something extreme next to a leisurely pass time and making an entirely new, fairly bizarre activity out of it. Like fire-eating.

Anyway, the latest talk-of-the-town in the world of kitesurfing is surrounding pro of the sport Lewis Crathern, who has jumped Brighton Pier on his trusted board.

The former British champion, 26, jumped Worthing Pier last year. But in our humble kitesurfing opinion this was better. Better take off, or something. Enjoy...
