Washington, July 18: A team of kitesurfers are set to create a world record by kiteboarding across the Bering Sea, a 56 mile stretch of Pacific Ocean between Alaska and Russia.
This is the Maurice Lacroix Bering Strait Expedition’s second year attempting the record, reports Discovery News
The three kitesurfers on the team who will work together and with their safety crew during the crossing are Geza and his brother, Andre Scholtz, and entrepreneur Constantin Bisanz of Austria, founder of an online shopping club with operations in multiple European countries.
“For this risky expedition, the focus lies on team spirit, trust, and the desire to overcome extreme obstacles, but it is also fun. The same goes for my business challenges – founding and establishing companies,” Bisanz said in a press release. (ANI)
