World Record Speed Windsurfing
On November 9th, 2015, Antoine Albeau set a new Windsurfing speed world record at the Luderitz Speed Challenge.
Above you can see the world record run in Doarama. With the short track and high speeds, it is recommended you turn the speed down to about 2x speed, otherwise the whole thing is over in less than 2 seconds.
The acceleration on to the straight is really impressive, jumping 10 knots in just over 1 second.
Thanks for posting Jan Hendrik de Bruin.
