KTA News:Virgin Armada Spain Sets New Record

Written by KTA on . Posted in News

The first of two Virgin Kitesurfing Armada’s was held at Los Lances Beach, Tarifa 31st August 2014. The event gave kitesurfers the chance to become Guinness World Record breakers, by aiming to break the record for the ‘Largest Parade of Kitesurfers’ and raise funds for good causes at the same time.

So a big congratulations to all who took part as you busted the current record with 352 kiters completing the 1 mile challenge

Spain

The next Virgin Armada is now due to take place in the UK at Hayling Island on one of the two last weekends of September or the first weekend of October, depending on the wind and conditions for any of the dates.

The UK Armada has an ambitious target to get over 500 GPS tracked kitesurfers to ride together on a mass downwinder from Hayling Island to Pagham, some 15 miles down the coast.

Still time to join this one so check out the Virgin Armada site
