English Channel: harsh times for kitesurfers

Two British kitesurfers have successfully kite crossed the English Channel. Wayne "Worsil" and Tom "Tiny tops" challenged super harsh conditions to complete the project.

Supported by two rib boats, the intrepid kiteboarders tried to get in the Guinness World Records and, at the same time, raised funds for Demelsea, a children’s charity institution.

Wayne and Tom had a huge swell in front of them, when they kicked off the kite trip. Moreover, wind gusts were making the life harder for the adventurers. The captured footage is incredible.

The conditions were so extreme that one rib boat even capsized. When the nerves and stress almost took part of the crew, a higher goal rose and a strong decision was made. They had to complete the mission.

Two hours and 30 minutes after, Wayne and Tom reached Boulogne, in France. They were extremely exhausted but absolutely stoked. The equipment was recovered, despite the enormous waves, and everyone was well.

Are you on a week-long beach holiday? Have you bought bodyboard for your kid? Smart move. Get ready to introduce your offspring to the waves easily and safely. It is going to be fun.
