Hannah Whiteley is a professional kitesurfer and model from the UK who appears to have taken a leaf out of Alex Thomson's book of 'stunts to please your sponsors' for this unusual kitesurfing in high heels stunt video on Youtube.com.
Filmed in what looks like kitesurfing heaven – probably Brazil judging by the location of a few of her other amazing kitesurfing aerial tricks videos – this might be a brilliant idea for an advert or as a scene in a film. How funny would it be to see this stunt with a comic ending in the style of the

Commenting on Youtube herself, Hannah wrote: "Kitesurfing in high heels was a lot harder than I thought it would be." But she makes it look easy! In fact there's only one awkward-looking moment at about 22 seconds in to the video, but there was no kiteboard or beach in sight at that point. We reckon one of the comments underneath the video sums it up best: "...it seems it was easier to stay on the board with these heels than getting down the stairway...".
