Not just any cat, but a HYDROFOIL CAT. Wow, that looks dangerous (but fun).

Holy Cow that was awesome! :wee:

I can't tell in the video- is the kite attached directly to the cart, or is it hooked to the pilot (as usual) and the pilot is attached to the boat?

Just awesome- makes me want to get a cat : )

I think those guys are based in Alameda. There was a site project.kiteboat.com but now it is gone.

Looks like they've dumped some serious dough into this project. I don't know how they expect to recoup it, but maybe Don M. is rich enough now he can afford to create custom toys like this (he's Naish's head kite designer).

Why bother with an inflation system when a foil would serve just as well? Seems like they're using a screw driver to drive a nail when a hammer would do the job better.
