Human kites

With my wife looking on in amazement, I had tied four people to long peices of string. I then sat them onto a surf board and lifted them above my head. 

Running at speed with the board held high, I approached the edge of a cliff. As I reached the edge, I launched them off, plummeting them towards the crashing sea below. 

Just before they hit the waves, a gush of air lifted the surf board up throwing the four people into the air. Holding the ends of the string attached to them, I then flew them all in a synchronised human kite display. 

Swooping and flying through the air, my kites glided on the thermals. My wife was very impressed.
