Here's a guy doing "Extreme Kite Snowboarding"

As far as I can tell, this "extreme sport" involves having a kite lift you up into the air, and then slamming you into the side of the mountain.  The snowboard attached to your feet, apparently, is what makes it "snowboarding", although as far as I can see, there really isn't much of that.
