Going HUGE in 65 Knots - Victor Fernandez in Spain
Not when they’re crashed, or flying low; Victor Fernandez would have been taking out kiteboarding kites in full flight. That’s how high he was going last week in a place called Canos De Meca, Spain. Of course, he would have been, if kiteboarders could handle that kind of wind.
Canos De Meca, a Mecca for natural footers thanks to the strong cross-onshore winds that blow from left to right when looking from the beach. There’s little kickers to jump off, and surf, and to give you a rest on the way back in. Like we said, it’s a natural footers paradise.
Check out the video below to watch a windsurfer jumping 10-15m high, from a wave no more than 1m. Oh and he can freestyle too!
Would your face look like this at 50 knots?
Take a ride on the boom of Hans Kreise from the Netherlands, as he goes smoking downwind on a 50+ knot speed run.
