CHRIS BENZ LUDERITZ SPEED CHALLENGE 2015 ON SUPER SPORT

Luderitz speed challenge kite speed event on Super Sport

Produced for the worldside sports TV network, Super Sport, this is an excellent round-up of the Luderitz Speed Challenge – the infamous speed event that takes place annually in November in incredible winds on the revered super narrow speed strip in Luderitz. There’s some cracking footage here as the records fell. 

 

Super Sport say: 

2015 blew gales in Luderitz, Namibia and the speed sailors, kiters and windsurfers, had the time of their lives! The absolute beauty of Luderitz, combined with an unbelievable speed canal, gave riders like Antoine Albeau, Bjorn Dunkerbeck, Sebastien Cattelan and many others, the opportunity to lay it all on the line, resulting in New world records, National records… and a whole lot of fun!

We have some incredible images coming up in issue #79, in January; the speed portrayal in those is very vivid indeed!
