World Record English Channel Crossing Video

Postby Toby » Tue Aug 14, 2012 8:33 pm

On 17 of May 2012, Bruno Sroka (kitesurf World champion) broke the World Record of 100 nautical miles by kitesurf from England to France. He broke the English Channel crossing record and made it in 5 hours. The old record belonged to Manu Bertin (in 2004 100 miles he realized in 5h20min).

Many thanks to: Baie de St.Brieuc, Body Glove, Cool Shoe, Cabrinha, Mini Store Brest, Notik shop, FFVL, Fred from Wiiik, Deimantina, Nicolas, Arnaud, Yannick for the security boat, Alexandre, Loick, Olivier, Maxime and the rest who believed and helped to achieve the new World record.

It's one of those weird records, Toby, because the English Channel is barely 21 miles across a little further up the coast. Seems like one could cross there in much less than 5 hours!

Not to take anything away from Bruno's performance, of course.
