Nine-time kitesurf world champion, Gisela Pulido, along with entrepreneur Javier PĂ©rez Dolset, led an army of 352 riders, covering a distance of a mile in Tarifa waters.
Professional and amateur riders from all over the world came together for this initiative that has entered the history books. With a strong levante wind that took three days to appear, the participants managed to break the Guinness World Record set at 318 riders last year at the British beach of Hayling Island.
After the record setting, the seventh event for the PKRA World Tour kicked off, which returns to Tarifa after a six year absence.
