Oceanvida supports and congratulates Rimas Kinka on his latest challenge to break a Guinness world record and his campaign for cleaner oceans.
Within the next few days (or weeks, depending on the weather) Rimas will attempt something no one else has done before. He will kitesurf from Jacksonville, Florida to Key West nonstop—430 miles of treacherous and unpredictable ocean. If he succeeds, he will be breaking the Guinness world record of the longest nonstop kite-surfing distance. He is no stranger to long-distance challenges; during the last few years he has been in the forefront of long-distance kitesurfing. In 2012 he broke the world record by kiting 401.2 miles off the coast of Florida in 24 hours. This time, he also wants to convey an important message: our ocean is chocking with plastics and we all need to do our part to clean it.

We are launching our new OceanVida Blog today just in time to celebrate a great event. In March 2013 we created the Club de Surfistas del Viento as part of our Guardianes de la Naturaleza program. Surf boards were donated by the Share the Stoke Foundation. The main purpose of the club is to teach local kids living on a remote beach on the Caribbean coast of Colombia to surf and protect the ocean. On April 8, 2014, six members of our club left for Australia on an unforgettable trip to learn about surfing culture in Australia—invited by the Government of Colombia. We feel honored that our kids were invited to such an important event, and we want to extent our gratitude to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Colombia.
