Virgin Kitesurfing Armada

Posted: Sept 17, 2013

"A little while ago I received a call from my good friends at Flexifoil, asking me if I was free to do some on-the-spot editing for an event happening in September. It wasn't just any old event either, but a World Record attempt by Sir Richard Branson and roughly 320 other passionate kite surfers.

The goal was to raise money and awareness for three fantastic charities, Snowcamp, RNLI and Virgin Unite.

Virgin, Flexifoil International, Best Kiteboarding and King of Watersports, along with an armada of other sponsors came together to support the event and make it a roaring success.

The aim was to get the largest ever armada of kitesurfers out, at the same time, to cover the course of a mile just off Hayling Island. Once complete the kiters would then head off on an epic downwinder to Lancing, some 48 miles along the coast.

This short edit is the result of a fantastic day, and couldn't have happened without the help and enthusiasm of all the volunteers, organisers and participants. Enjoy!"—

I will be donating 100% of the tips on this video to the charities the event supported.
