Rimas Kinka Sets World Record for the Longest Nonstop Kitesurfing Distance Sailed

Kiteboarders have set a new Guinness World Record. Rimas Kinka, a dedicated kitesurfer from Florida, has set the Guinness Book of World Record for the Longest Nonstop Kitesurfing Distance ever sailed.

The daring athlete departed in his journey from Jacksonville, Florida and finished the trip near Palm Beach. He sailed no less than 282.1 stand miles, during 34 hours, 41 minutes and 27 seconds. Rimas could do pit stops for changing kites and boards, but without leaving the beach or taking off his GPS devices.

Rimas was the guy to hold the previous longest nonstop kitesurfing distance sailed in laps record, as last year he traveled 313.7 miles in 24 hours. He has just improved his previous Guinness World Record by 52,37 miles. This record is different in that it is the longest distance between two points versus laps.
