Congratulations to Ozone’s French team rider Marine Tlattla for achieving a new nautical mile speed world record and becoming the fastest woman on a kite!

With the wind happily howling at the Prince of Speed event in Plage du Rouet, La Palme (France) on the 10th June, Marine successfully averaged a speed of 35.41 knots on the Edge V9 6m and smashed the previous record, not only is she the fastest woman on a kite over the nautical mile she is also the fastest woman overall in France across all categories; boat, kite and windsurf. On top of that Marine also scored a non-official record for the “outright 500m open ocean woman” with an average speed of 40,47 knots. **All the official records are subject to be ratified by WSSRC.

Marine’s next goal will be to ‘officially’ break the 500m barrier and claim her second world record, the attempt looks set for the 1st July… Good luck Marine!
