LiP team rider Rimas Kinka sets new world record
Now official, we congratulate our team rider Rimas Kinka for setting the new world record of the longest kitesurfing journey, traveling 446 nautical miles (826 km; 513 statute miles) from Jacksonville to Key West (Miami, USA), from February 5 to 8, 2015.
Rimas hopes to use his achievement to raise awareness of ocean pollution. His motto is Pure Ocean: No Plastic, It’s Fantastic. “Spending a lot of time on the ocean, I notice how drastically plastic pollution has increased,” he says. “I’ve talked to kitesurfers around the world, and they tell me it’s the same in every country.”
