Carlos Aldaravi Sets New World Record

Carlos Aldaravi has flown over the waters of Valdevaqueros Beach, in Tarifa, Spain, for more than a minute.

The kiteboarder from Santa Pola set a new world record after pulling off a big air that lasted over 60 seconds.
People at the legendary wind sports beach cheered the Spaniard's accomplishment, which also included 20 kite loops. The previous world record was 37 seconds.

According to the kitesurfer, the wind was blowing in the 30-to-50 knots range, and he was flying a seven-meter kite.
"It's hard to describe what I felt. It's pure adrenaline," expressed Aldaravi.

The Spanish daredevil flew over the choppy waters for over one kilometer (0.6 miles).

"Whenever I rode my kite, I asked myself if I could get a one-minute air, but then I would always end up thinking it was impossible."

But Carlos kept training, and he always knew that Tarifa would be the place where he could eventually do it one day.
