Director of One Movement Events and Marketing Tyrone Rawlins said in a statement that 415 kitesurfers completed a one-mile course, breaking the previous record of 352 kitesurfers which was set last year in southern Spain.
The whole parade lasted three hours, and the windy conditions were perfect.
“It was an amazing day, the wind couldn’t have been better and the view of hundreds of kiters together in front of Table Mountain was awesome,” Director of the Kitesurfing Armada Dan Charlish said in a press release.
The kitesurfing armada supported three charities, including the local nonprofit SAVE Foundation, which aims to educate townships and help wildlife.
Local promoter Andre de Wet said the important thing moving forward will be to protect the record.
“Now we just need to retain the record every year,” he said.
