A Not-So Perfect Storm

The last time you saw Kevin Kearney, he was on Fort Lauderdale Beach. A split second later he was flying – across A1A before colliding with the side of a condo tower. Yep, he's that kiteboarder. At 9 p.m. tonight the Fort Lauderdale man appears on the cable television network TruTV show Most Daring (Channel 33 on local Comcast) to talk about that morning last August when a big gust from Tropical Storm Fay nearly killed him, while simultaneously making him a youtube celebrity. "I have felt so lost -- and bored -- feeling like my life is not complete since I haven't been kiteboarding," says Kearney, who says he’s “mostly healed” and says he’ll be back on the ocean soon. Catch the action this evening.
