Part flying attached to a kite, part traditional surfing, Kite surfing is one of the most extreme sports on the water. Sail board enthusiasts flock to Walvis Bay and Luderitz for good reason. The wind conditions at these two locations are ideal – opening up a new range of tricks, heart-stopping stunts and world record speeds. For beginners to intermediate level, Luderitz has a kite surf school operated by a professional. Luderitz is also home to the annual Luderitz Speed Challenge, a competition to see who is the fastest over 500 meters. During the 2012 event, no less than 16 national and three world records were broken in windsurfing. The *magical* 50knot/90kph+ barrier was broken!
