Kitesurf Odyssey 2017 - The new Challenge has been presented
2017 is the year of the largest and Ultimate Odyssey in the Portuguese sea. This time the objective is to connect the azores to the continent on kitesurfing - more than 1500 km of Atlantic Ocean in its most savage state.
With departure scheduled for September 2017 and a minimum duration of 5 days, this crossing will be the most vulnerable to weather changes, accumulated fatigue and danger at sea.
The distance is so much that a motor boat has no autonomy to follow, which led to the support team following a sailboat, independent of fuel and friend of the environment, meeting the project values.
The Cherry on top of the cake is the invitation made to the world record holder of kitesurf - Anke Brandt - Kite Beyond - to share miles during this long odyssey. The German has the world record for the largest kite surfing trip, with the 491 km Mark Mark for 29 hours between Bahrain and Abu Dhabi in 2016.
