Camille Juban breaks record for longest windsurfing wave
Posted On:  31/08/2013 07:52:15

Camille Juban has broken the Guinness world record for the longest duration surfing a wave, in the iconic Chicama, in Peru. The French sailor has ridden the longest windsurfing wave ever, with a total time of 7 minutes and 3 seconds.

In September 2012, Peruvian surfer Cristobal de Col performed 34 carved turns on a single, at Chicama. His wave lasted 2 minutes and 20 seconds and put him in the Guinness Book of World Records.

The Peruvian gem of Chicama is located halfway between Lima and the border of Ecuador. It is considered one of the longest waves in the world. 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. The stunt was complete on the 19th August 2013.
