Rimas Kinka: the Iron Man of kiteboarding

Lithuanian kiteboarder Rimas Kinka sailed 513 miles (826 kilometers) along the coast of Florida, in 72 hours. It's a new Guinness World Record for the longest kitesurfing journey ever.

It was one of the toughest challenges Rimas Kinka has ever had in his kiteboarding career. Determined to beat his own record, the intrepid rider set sail with a simple green message: "Pure Ocean, No Plastic, It's Fantastic."

Kinka started his quest in Jacksonville, Florida, on the 5th February, 2015, at 10am. After a few pit stops, the sailor realized he had lost his GPS. As a result, his support crew was not able to track him until he reached Cocoa Beach.

On the second day, Rimas passed by Jupiter and hit the rocks. A couple of scratches, but he was ready to go. On Saturday, he sailed past Crandon Park, Key Biscayne, and Whale Harbor.

The problems (pain, broken fins) kept storming Rimas' ride, but he was determined to sail away. Kinka continued to Key West. With a no-wind scenario, the Lithuanian decided end his journey at Sugarloaf Key.
