Virgin Kitesurfing Armada: Gisela Pulido celebrates in Tarifa

The Virgin Kitesurfing Armada has set a Guinness World Record for the largest parade of kitesurfers, in Tarifa, Spain.

The event boosted by Richard Branson attracted a total of 352 riders to the warm waters of the south of Spain. The previous record was set in 2013 with 318 kiteboarders.

The world record has rules: the fleet must sail together for one nautical mile. And that is exactly what 352 kiteboarders did.

The winds were ranging between 20-27 knots, and all participants were eagerly waiting for the green light. After getting everyone in the water, Guinness officials confirmed the world record.

"The event has been incredible. Nice vibes at the Best Pro Center Tarifa and in the beach. Thanks to the more than 300 riders who have participated. We did it!" expressed PKRA world champion Gisela Pulido.

The Virgin Kitesurfing Armada will travel to Hayling Island for two days of kiteboarding exhibitions.
