Disabled kiter breaks speed world record

Kiter-Speed-RecordOn this 23 October 2014, in L├╝deritz, Namibia, will go down in the history books as Kite surfer Chris Ballois (France) has set a new World Record for disabled riders, ratified by the WSSRC and ISAF-IFDS.

In only 25 knot average winds and after reaching 39.14 knots on his very first run down the multiple-record breaking channel, Chris on his second run then took his brand new world record to yet another level with 42.94 knots average speed over the official 500 mtrs.

His passion for the sport has motivated him to gain the skills, strength, physical and mental conditioning to achieve speeds that many non-disabled kite surfers only dream of.
Good winds are forecast for the next few days and if Chris continues with his existing performances, he could very well be the fastest performer yet.
