ABOUT

For Brian’s 21st birthday he was given a Guinness World Record book. Unbeknownst to his gift giving friends, this present lit a fire in Brian who was determined to create a record of his own.

He initially attempted to beat the record for eating a raw onion the quickest, but that requires more training than his 15 years of kiting experience.

Therefore Brian’s passion for adventure and thrill of the unknown spawned the idea to set a new record for longest distance travelled on a kiteboard.

Leaving the beach with kite and board in tow –  emergency equipment, a gas cooker, electronics, water, rations, a hammock, thongs, 1 pair of undies, and a shitload of determination.
