Extreme Sports with Extreme Math – Kitesurfing

While at the beach, we got to see an amazing sport in action: kitesurfing!

I couldn’t help but marvel at all the math this guy was doing automatically and at great speed.

And he did it effortlessly!

He probably didn’t even recognize he was doing math the whole time.

He was managing the angles of his board on the waves and calculating the angle of the kite with the wind.

And every so often he had to recalculate to turn and surf in the other direction!

Everyone does this with normal activities.

Do you know anyone who thinks they don’t do math? Watch their activities carefully, you’ll soon see that even in walking, they’re doing fast and furious calculations!
