KTA News:Virgin Kitesurf Armada UK

The Virgin Kitesurf Armada hosted by Lewis Crathern for the UK event aimed to bring the kitesurfing community together not only for an attempt on the world record for number of kiters on the water for a 1 mile ‘race’ but also for a 2 day kitesurfing festival, featuring international kite brands exhibiting the latest gear, pro kiter Q & A sessions, a big screen with live tracking of the kitesurfing and kite movie screenings, music, bars & entertainment, pro kiter demo’s, taster sessions, a family area and on-site camping and facilities.

Over the weekend they aimed to break our own Guinness World Record for the ‘Largest Parade of Kitesurfers’ - first set in the UK with 318 kitesurfers on 15th September 2013 and then beaten earlier this year in Spain with 352 riders completing the course –

This UK was looking set for 500+ riders to join the Armada and ride together from at Hayling Island and take back the official World Record.

In the end unfortunately after 2 postponed weekends due to lack of wind the Virgin Kitesurfing Armada UK again in light winds saw 344 riders completed the mile course at Hayling Island, beating last year’s UK record, but not quite the Spanish one.

 

However, a new Guinness World Record was set on the second day of the festival for SUP with 256 paddle boarders completing the Armada course.
