Robby Naish: a model everywhere

Robby Naish is the new fashion trendsetter for all water sports fans.

The waterman is the new model for the 2010 Fall collection by Tommy Hilfiger. The windsurfing icon has had a pretty intense photo session. He had to dress up business suits and all type of clothes for the proper sporting activity.

Why wouldn't you wear a tie for a nice kitesurfing ride? Some say an executive suit is the best protection against the cold winter ocean waters. And that's exactly what Robby did.

Watch how he managed to dress Tommy Hilfiger and still surf like a pro. Amazing.

Lewis Crathern has done it again. The intrepid kitesurfer jumped over the Brighton Pier, in the UK, one year after leaping over the Worthing Pier.

The stuntman has prepared everything and, again, there were no problems. It was 4pm when Crathern got the best winds and waves to attempt the second dangerous challenge.

He had to navigate two hours before making the decision to leave the choppy waters and head for the sky. Watch how he did it.

Murray Smith: the 250 kitesurfing guy

Murray Smith will try to kitesurf from Newquay (Cornwall, west Wales) to New Quay (Ceredigion, mid-west Wales), in the United Kingdom.

Not, it is not a mistake in typing, it's true and a long way. Smith wants to break a world record by sailing 250 miles in 24 hours.

The 25-year-old kitesurfer from Dartmouth will even "touch" Arklow (east Ireland) before reaching the final destination. Fatigue, hypothermia, night time, vessels and unfavorable winds are the biggest challenges.

Murray Smith will be updating his GPS coordinates live and online in his website. The adventurer will be havinga rigid inflatable boat support.

The record attempt might get underway between 12th and 18th November. In 2009, Murray Smith kitesurfed over 95 miles between the Caribbean islands of Antigua and St Barts.
