KiteTracker Contest Winner 2015: Snowkiting Speed

Written at 20:24 by kitetracker.com

Snowkite Speed Contest
The Hardangervidda Plateau is the good known and famous spot of epic movies like “Snowkitefilm” and the Red Bull Ragnarok contest and this year, Felix took this unlimited seeming area as his base for the speed record.
Carrying different GPS devices to compare the results, he was also smart enough to carry his smartphone with the KiteTracker App. And did an excellent job with the amazing 121km/h!!
KiteTracker doesn’t just record the fastest GPS speed – it will sort out the wrong GPS infos (false speed computations) and will count only the most accurate signals and speed over a period of 5 seconds.

Congratulations Felix to your 121km/h in Norway!

KiteTracker Contest Winner 2015: Landboarding Distance

Written at 19:27 by kitetracker.com

Landboarding Distance Contest
Our Czech Friend Leguan took the challenge and was competitor of the first Czech 24h Landboarding-Competition and he made his respectful title on KiteTracker with the 2015 Landboarding Distance Contest with 251km! Respect Leguan!!
Just for info: according to the KiteTracker Contest Rules 2015, the counting distance / track has to be done at the same day. The 202km of Leguan have been done at the same date – even he was riding 24 hours over more than one day (date) – but we counted only the kilometers done on one single date -> and he still is on first place! Congratulations!

Congratulations leguan to your 251km on the landboard!

Landboarding Speed Contest
Lukas did an awesome job at the KiteArea place where one of the first KiteTracker LiveRanking Buggy/Landboarding Races took place.
With crazy conditions and strong wind he managed to do the 70km/h on grass and not on a concrete area as you would think! One honest action Lukas! Congrats!

Congratulations Lukas to your 7okm/h on the landboard!

Similar to last year, Pascal Lohmann (kitepascal) recorded some serious speed sessions on his landboard and made it again to the leader position! More than 85km/h on a landboard, thats faster than most Snowkiter would dare to go on their skis, respect!
Congrats and thumbs up for kitepascal with 87km/h on his landboard !!

Landboarding Distance Contest
Looks like the landboarding distance contest was like last year a decision made in the last seconds – the leader gurke (Felix) took the chance and attempted his run during the last 2 days of the KiteTracker contest. And was successful with his mission and went for more than 200km!

Congratulations gurke to your 202km on the landboard!

Kitesurfing  Distance Contest
Probably the most impressive session has been uploaded by drkitesurf from the San Francisco area. With his foilboard, he we went for the longest kitesurfing track ever uploaded on KiteTracker and even the longest track ever done – so it’s a new world record for the longest distance in Kitesurfing (according to the Guinness Book of World Records).
So biiig and massive respect for this huge distance winner – session!! Absolutely incredible!!

KiteTracker congratulates for this epic session and effort of DrKitesurf !!!
