Departing from his doorstep in New Brighton NSW, and arriving at his parents home in Aspendale Beach VIC, Brian has finally completed his world record journey on Easter Sunday (April 4 2021).
Brian set out to achieve his goal of doorstep to doorstep on December 28, 2020 and since then his only means of transport along the east coast of Australia has been powered by wind.
He’s seen some amazing places, met some outstanding people, and is now a Guinness World Record holder. His official distance is yet to be recorded but it’s around the 1800km+ mark. Congratulations Brian on your epic achievement and thanks to everyone involved.
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 on 28th December 2020, 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.
