Louis Tapper has successfully kitesurfed the 2000 kilometres of Brazil's coast to set a new world record for the longest kitesurfing journey. Tapper concluded the adventure in 30 days, landing at Praia do Meio Beach.
"I am pleased to finish and somewhat relived. I am looking forward to do some stress free kiting and waking up late", said Tapper after finishing this tiring adventure.
In the last day, Louis Tapper sailed 40 kilometres in an open water relaxing cross.
Besides breaking the world record, the kitesurfer raised money for the Surf Aid charity, inspired people to try kitesurfing and pushed himself physically and mentally.
