Ask the beer guys in Ireland, they make the rules.

Great job Rimas, anyone up for kiting without sleep or a substantial break for almost 35 hours using the same muscles on one tack in often strong winds and rough open sea conditions?!

I used to routinely go 8 hours on multiple tacks with no extended break but that doesn't come remotely close to fraction of his run.

I wonder what you would call the record if it was really non-stop! :lol:


I guess they realise that actual non stop is not practical.

However anyone who bags an attempt of 30+ hours of kiting has absolutely no comprehension of how difficult a task it is to kite for that long.

I think its practical,it would just be a shorter distance and time.Doesn't diminish what he accomplished,I know i would last about 8 hrs tops.Has to be tough mentally as well. Reminds me of the skiing vertical challenges.
