One Leg Wake Boarding is Cool

Pro kite and wake boarder Sean Reyngoudt not only has an awesome last name but also is missing his left leg. He lost the leg when he was run over by a fork truck at a fish market when he was 19. Not only did he get over the loss of the leg and get back at it he is damned good. He has won many kite boarding competitions and as this vid shows is a wicked good wake boarder.

I have both my legs and I suck at wake boarding, perhaps that is where my disdain for the sport comes from. Or its the general D-baggery that is prevalent in the sport. Of course after reading tweets sent by a fair number of water skiiers I don't think we are immune from said D-baggery.
