Kitesurfers prepare to kite cross the Taiwan Strait


TA group of multinational kitersurfers is planning to kite across the Taiwan Strait, in September. This will the first attempt made ever in this region.
 
The group is going to kite across over 130 miles from Taiwan to Mainland, regardless to the big waves, hairy wind, strong current and the political tensions between the two countries.
 
The journey will require 10-12 hours straight of intense kiting. At the same time, this will set a record in the history, if kiteboarders meet success. They be the first group to across country by kites.
 
The pioneer of the group is a 45kg girl from Hong Kong, who placed first in the Asian Kiteboarding Championships, held in 2010.
 
All kiteboarders involved want to promote the sport awareness in the Asian nations and to lobby for the inclusion of kiteboarding in the 2016 Olympic Games, to be held in the beautiful city of Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil.
 
The Taiwan Strait separates China and Taiwan. It is a an important fishing resource and a channel route for oil shipment from the Middle East to Japan..
