Atlantic Crossing – Enable Passion

6 Riders – One Goal! To ride the longest downwinder ever, crossing the Atlantic Ocean.

The HTC atlantic kite challange

Departing at the end of November 2013 a team of 6 will cross the Atlantic Ocean by kite. In a 24-hours non-stop relay session every rider will be surfing 4 hours a day: 2 by day, 2 by night. The team will take the Southern Atlantic route – departing from the Canary Islands – arriving 6000 km (or 3200 Nm) later in the Caribbean.

Want to be involved?

The 6th rider for the HTC Atlantic Kite Challenge will be selected by a video contest and a meet and greet with the team. Don’t worry – we are not expecting a professional production. All you need to do is send us a video explaining why you would like to cross the Atlantic Ocean with a kite. Simple right?

Off course – we want to make sure we all arrive at the other side safely. Some risks we cannot manage in advance – others we can! That is why we do have some selection criteria for our last teammate. Please check below, get inspired, and be in touch!

The Enable Passion Team

Please note: a personalized video for the Contest is highly appreciated!
