Kiteboarding Race through the Brazilian Desert

Kiteboarding Race Across Brazilian Desert   YouTube[spacer height=”30″ mobile_hide=”true”]

Red Bull is known for thinking outside of the box for its events and the Rally Dos Ventos is no exception. 45 kitesurfers from all over the world joined this unique race where using a compass and GPS, they had to kitesurf, sand surf and run to find the finish line. Find it? Yes find it since no rider knew where it was going to be until the race day. This and the fact that the lagoons between the dunes change every year, made it challenging to find the quickest route by using as much of the available lagoons as possible.

All riders were on finless boards so they could ride in the shallow lagoons and transition onto sand whenever needed – some even waxed their boards! Read more about it on Red Bulls site.[spacer height=”30″ mobile_hide=”true”]
