An "armada" of 352 kitesurfers in southern Spain breaks the Guinness World Record for the largest kitesurfing parade across one nautical mile. Participants in the ride gathered at the Best Pro Centre in Tarifa on the south coast of Spain from the early hours of Sunday 31st August. A strong easterly wind - peaking at 27 knots - blew off the Levante, dominated the ride and created serious challenges for the boarders shoring up at the end of the course. Despite the wind, however, the army of boarders - made up of professionals and amateurs alike - went on to break the Guinness World Record for the largest en masse kitesurf, beating the 318 participants who took the record in 2013.
