Naked kitesurfing in China!
The relatively harmless act caused a scene on Huandao beach in Xiamen, China this week after a kitesurfer identified only as Louis, said he just had to strip off during his kiteboarding session to experience the beauty of the Xiamen sea water. “I was about to leave Xiamen for Shandong on August 18th to attend a kite surfing contest. I just couldn’t help it and it was my first time to surf naked” said Louis.
The man drew quite the crowd after someone posted on Weibo (like twitter in china) about him, giving locals a chance to race down to the beach to get in on the action. Not all were amused however, saying things like "man did that for fame, and it is uncivilised behaviour" on the Twitterish website.
Louis didn't mind though, saying “It’s worth it as Xiamen sea water is so beautiful, but not many people will appreciate what I have done here due to the cultural background.” In Australia, it would be seen as a bit of harmless fun - but Louis is luckily he wasn't arrested with China's strict police and tight public nudity laws...
