Kitesurfing record – level 2

09-09-2014 15:00

A kitesurfing armada broke a Guinness World Record in Spain. A strong wind blew at 27 knots (50 kilometres per hour) and created serious challenges for the kitesurfers.

The large group of boarders was made up of professionals as well as amateurs. They set the new record for the largest en masse kitesurf. They beat the 318 kitesurfers who set the previous record in 2013.

Difficult words: armada (big group), challenge (difficult situation), en masse (in a group).

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