Watch a new videoclip filmed on the 8th of June, when Hans Kreisel and Jurjen van der Noord broke the GPS world records at the Dutch speed spot “The Brace” as follows:
- Hans Kreisel – GPS World Record 10 sec. Run 48.83 knots
- Jurjen van der Noord – Best GPS 5×10 sec. AVG 48.4 knots & highest max speed record by a GPS – 50,51 knt
Jurjen van der Noord: “As I parked the car the wind had already picked up. On the dike we measured 35 knots, gusting 43 knots. I decided to take my smallest sail, the Severne Reflex III 5.6 and my smallest board, the Starboard iSonic Speedspecial W44. I already knew this could be a very good day so I took my time to rig my gear as good as possible. The guys from the Ghosts of Speed movie joined us and made some shots of 1 speedies rigging their gear to the max. Then the long long walk started to the sand bar, approx. 1800m.”…read the full story on the Starboard Website. – Speed story Jurjen van der Noord
