Kitesurfing record - level 1

09-09-2014 15:00

Kitesurfers set a record in 2013. There were over 300 of them. They set the record because they were so many of them. This record is now broken.

A large group of people break this record in Spain. The wind blew at 27 knots (50 kilometres per hour). This weather was very challenging. There were professionals and amateurs.

Difficult words: amount (number), challenging (difficult), professional/amateur (person who does something for money/person who does something just for fun).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
