Today the International Sailing Federation voted to include kiteboarding in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Not only is kiteboarding in, but windsurfing is out as there are a limited number of medals that can be given to sailing sports.
A mutual desire to seek out the world’s most remote and dynamic kitesurfing and surfing locations, while building awareness and inspiring solutions to the environmental crisis has culminated into a five year agreement between Cabrinha and Offshore Odysseys. The expedition is called the Cabrinha Quest.
Just days after Alex Caizergues posted a new world record speed of 54.93 knots, and one hour after Sebastien Cattelan took it to 55.49, Rob Douglas has taken the top spot with a speed of 55.65 knots at the 2010 Luderitz Speed Challenge.
