Crash Different

The greatest revelation of the Lüderitz Speed Challenge 2009 is the possibility of kiters riding under full sail (and at full speed) in a channel. Currently the only channel purpose-built for speed is in Sainte Marie de la Mer in France, where only windsurfers have been able to compete and produce great times.

Before the 2009 Lüderitz event, no-one could imagine kiteboarders also working in a channel. The channel in France is 30 metres wide and 800 metres long , the one in Lüderitz was only three metres wide and 800 m long.
