Kitesurfing record - level 3

Kitesurfing record - level 3

09-09-2014 15:00

A kitesurfing armada has broken a Guinness World Record in Spain.

Participants in the ride gathered at the Best Pro Centre in Tarifa on the south coast from the early hours of the morning on Sunday the 31st of August.

A strong easterly wind, peaking at 27 knots (50 kilometres per hour), blew off the Levante, dominated the ride and created serious challenges for the boarders shoring up at the end of the course.

Despite the wind, the army of boarders, made up of professionals and amateurs alike, went on to break the Guinness World Record for the largest en masse kitesurf, beating the 318 participants who took the record in 2013.

Sir Richard Branson, who broke the record in March for the most people riding a single kitesurf board, was unable to attend the event but sent his support.

Difficult words: armada (big group), participant (person who does something), shore (come to shore), en masse (in a group).
