Camille Juban beat the Guinness World Record of the longest duration wave ride on Monday 19th August 2013 at 16h24min with a time of 07min 03sec on the mythic wave of Chicama in Peru.
The Peruvian village of Chicama is located halfway between Lima and the border of Ecuador. It is considered one of the longest waves in the world and in theory, surfers can ride a wave for 2.5 miles (4 kilometers). Camille Juban’s new windsurfing record has already been certified and confirmed by the Guinness World of Records.
Camille and and his brother Tom Juban came to Chicama, in the Peruvian desert to beat the Guinness World Record for longest wave ever windsurfed. But before they do that they have to get the right swell, test the cameras, make sure the GPS is running and figure out how the waves at Peru’s longest point really work.
