New World Record: Long Distance Strapless Kitesurfing

On November 3rd 2012 Petr "Pechi" Pechacek from the Czech Republic made first world record in long distance strapless kitesurfing in Aruba. In 6 hours without stopping he made 173km.

The vent was official registered at Guinness, so witnesses and timekeepers were present. Distance was measured by GPS.

Now it is official approved by Gunness world records.
