Well, it is not 200 km, which is realy impressive,
but just 30 km to circle one of our 8 km long mountain lake:

With a monofoil you have to keep your trips small :) , but always enjoy a lot to pass every corner of our lakes and to folow the outline as far as possible.
It's still impressive how far you can reach into every lee, which years before on twintip no one would have ever believed.

I wanted to see how much I could cover in 4h. Turns out it is about 70 miles. The ride below is measured at 62 miles but I hit the pause button inadvertently and for 35 minutes nothing was recorded. I was not all that tired at the end, but my legs are hurting 2 days later still. It was a great experience.
