Discovery Channel debuts a new TV six episode action-adventure series "Catching Air" from Thursday, Jan. 6 through Thursday, Feb. 17 at 9:00 PM.
Using the Renegade prosthetic foot from Freedom Innovations in Irvine, Calif., the 27-year-old Reyngoudt will be following the wind as it whistles through the most rugged terrain from his hometown in the Florida Keys in the East, to the scenic gorges of Oregon and Alaska in the West.
"Catching Air" aims to introduce a wider audience to the extreme sport that is catching on with more and more adventurers, able-bodied and amputees alike. The show takes viewers back to where the sport originated – in the Columbian River Gorge at the town of Hood River, Oregon. In the first episode, the kiteboarding team of Reyngoudt and Andy Hurdman and crew will tackle remote areas off the Florida Keys in the Atlantic Ocean where they will conquer large ocean swells as they break over shallow coral.
