Sam Lutman-Pauc: kiteboarding in cold water Britain

Sam Lutman-Pauc will be attempting to set a speed record for the fastest crossing of the length of the world famous Loch Ness, as part of "The Cold Water Project", a exploration of the British Isles powered by Volvo.

The British kitesurfer who has already crossed the English Channel is entering an adventure to discover some of the most dramatic, savage, yet beautiful beaches our country has to offer.

"The idea behind this project is to capture the raw and powerful beauty of mother nature and capture exactly what she is capable of throwing up when she's not happy", explains Sam Lutman-Pauc.

"If the Volvo Cold Water Project doesn't sound crazy enough anyway, to get to some of the untapped and un-ridden spots we filmed at this weekend we had to hoist equipment down cliffs, access a beach via a cave network and really work with the tide to reach some of the most remote places".

The first stage of the extreme kitesurfing challenge is Cornwall. He surfed the pounding waters of Newquay and surrounding areas to capture some of the most dramatic and extreme Cornish coast for his unique film project.

"The Cold Water Project" will also visit North Wales, followed by The Hebrides and then Loch Ness, where Sam Lutman-Pauc will go for a speed record for the fastest crossing of famous lake.
