Alex Caizergues: trying the American dream

French kitesurf champion Alexandre Caizergues is training around New York's Statue of Liberty, USA.

The fastest kiteboarder in the world is working hard to snatch back his world sailing speed record (51.36 knots), currently held by l'Hydroptère, the hi-tech sailing boat.

"This is something I wanted to do for a long time. In front of Manhattan building you feel really small. The wind conditions aren't perfect, but the location is magical", stated Caizergues.
