500 meters

Running the Luderitz course

(occasional saucy word)

If you haven't already, check out some of Ben's earlier videos from Luderitz including his own runs . For an ex-pro, it's amazing how anxious he is about his own run. I can't even imagine.

New kitesurfing world record just set. Don't need to be a facebookie to watch.

Re: 500 meters

just... wow. I wonder how much air resistance that camera on his helmet creates? At that speed, those things matter. For those curious like me, this was set in France. Too bad we can't do something like this at OBX. We have sand, water, wind and DOT tractors.

I was impressed by the "ground crew" he needed to keep near the ground.

Part 3. Hilarious. Informative. Recommended. I'm getting one of those helmets. Wink
