World Record Windsurfing Speed Challenge


IR777 is up for a new challenge

Irish windsurfer Oisín van Gelderen IR777 has been competing in Ireland and Internationally for almost 30 years, and has racked up 27 National Titles in every discipline of the sport, from riding 40ft waves and doing double loops in the air , to chasing his speed dreams of hitting 100kph and is chasing the 50knots (92.6kph) barrier to smash the Irish record of 40.44knots.

Oisín’s next challenge is the La Palme Speed Challenge and the World Record Speed attempt.

Oisín will be competing against all of the top Windsurfers in the World between 11th March and 1st April – lets hope the relentless Tramontana Wind comes to give them record breaking conditions of flat water and high winds.

Good luck Oisín. If you want to sea Oisín in action, check out his Vimeo – vimeo.com/ir777/videos.
