Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A Belgian man is resting in Fargo after traveling all the way from Winnipeg using a snowboard and a kite.

Geert De Smedt is a winter sports enthusiast, and for the past five years has "snowkited" across glaciers and other landscapes.

In the past, he has also climbed mountains to snowboard down.

His latest expedition brought him across the Canada-United States border.

Geert De Smedt, Snow-Kiter: "I was looking for a new expedition, something completely different. I looked where in the world is it possible, where is it flat to do long-distances? And then I came on the site of North Dakota."

Geert's trip took about a week.
