In March 2013, Victorian windsurfer Craig Hollins ventured to Lake George in South Australia to attempt a world distance record. After about two hours he had already racked up 100kms. Around 9pm after 14 hours he had sailed 538kms and set a new World Record! Watch the whole story in this video here.
On November 21th 2012, Antoine Albeau after smashed the 50 knots barrier several times reached 51 knots, ending with the best performance ever in windsurfing and registering a New Speed World Record : 52.05 knots!!! Check out his insane speeds in this video.
Almost everyday a record has been broken in Nambia, the windsurfers keep smashing the 500M record. On Wednesday November 21, Antoine Albeau was timed at 52.05 knots improving his own record, as he had already set on November 13.
Anders Bringdal followed with a new Swedish Record which is also Production board World Record, 51.45 knots!
Jurjen Van Der Noord the Dutch Record Holder also went over 51 knots today, joining Anders Bringdal and Cédric Bordes, with 51.26 knots!
With more than a week left there`s no telling what happened, and the big man Bjorn Dunkerbeck just joined the contest and we can expect some big numbers from him, but will he or anyone beat Antoine Albeau’s 52 knots?
