Almost one year after he broke the Guinness Book of World Records’ Longest Nonstop Kitesurfing Distance record, Rimas Kinka from Florida is attempting to break the record once again. Last year, he set the record for the longest nonstop kitesurfing distance via laps, traveling 313.7 miles in 24 hours. This year he will attempt to break the current record of 229.73 stand miles by starting in Jacksonville and finishing in Mimai at Crandon Park, a total of 350 miles. This record is different in that it is the longest distance between two points versus laps.
Rimas will begin his journey Saturday, October 13, 2012 at 6 am. He will be updating his progress every 3 hours on his facebook page http://www.facebook.com/rimasknk?fref=ts which also has more info re: what it will take for him to break the record.
Good luck Rimas!
