Louis Tapper: a fishing net isn't going to stop his 2000km dream

Louis Tapper has already started his mission of kiteboarding 2000 kilometres of Brazil’s coast to set a new world record for the “longest journey kitesurfing”.

Keeping fit, gaining confidence and treating injuries have been the biggest daily goals of a kiteboarder that has already traveled 200 kilometres, in a single day. Some days have been better, other worse.

Tapper has been managing problems with kite boards, GPS devices, GoPro camera, kite straps, fins, kite lines, fishing nets, reefs and even mangroves.

The kite journey isn't easy - it wasn't supposed to be - but Louis Tapper is doing very good.

Thirty Formula GPS kiteboarders battled it out on the mountains of the Alto Sangro, Italy, for the second leg of 2018 IKA Snowkite World Cup.
