Bruno Sroka: he loves tough challenges

Bruno Sroka has successfully completed the first kite foil crossing of the Bay of Saint-Brieuc, in the northwest of France.

The French kiteboarder sailed for 21.7 miles (35 kilometers) in 52 minutes and 27 seconds. Sroka started his adventure in Pléneuf-Val-André and concluded the challenge at Paimpol.

"There was no compass involved, which means that you sail by your own instinct! It's impossible to see where you'll be arriving, so you have to trust your maritime feeling to reach dry land," explains Sroka.

"A time has been established so that everyone can try and beat it. Make sure you have the experience and the gear for the crossing."

Bruno Sroka has already completed a 240 nautical mile (444 kilometers) kite cross between the French village of Aber Wrac'h and Irish town of Crosshaven.
