Bruno Sroka to Kitesurf Across English Channel: The First Kitesurfer to Arrive at an “Olympic City”-Promotes Kitesurfing as an Olympic Sport


Brittany, France (PRWEB UK) 9 May 2012

As the London 2012 Olympic Games approach, Bruno Sroka, Champion Kitesurfer is going to mark the occasion with a world record attempt by kitesurfing accross the English Channel May 9, 2012. The crossing will promote kitesurfing as a new official Olympic sport in the Rio 2016 Games.

As soon as weather permits, Bruno is going to rise to the challenge of crossing the English Channel by kite surf. Bruno wants to attempt the record as soon as possible! We have been a little unlucky the past few weeks with a miserable April! But hopefully May will provide some great kitesurfing weather and we can get out on the sea!

He will attempt to cross 100 nautical miles, which is not the shortest crossing, but is definitely the most exciting. Manu Bertin holds the current record, and Bruno wants to beat his 5 hours and 20 minutes.

The worlds eyes will be on London this summer, and it is for this reason that Bruno has decided to train for the crossing now. What better way to promote Kitesurfing as an Olympic sport than to smash a world record arriving in the host country!

Bruno has been training hard mentally & physically so that he can prove to the world that Kitesurfing deserves a place in the historic event. The 2016 games take place in Rio will be an amazing place to introduce kitesurfing to the Olympics!

About Bruno

Bruno Sroka is Frances number one kitesurfer. He has won the Course Racing World Cup 3 times, as well as winning the European Championship 3 times. He is the first and only kitesurfer to cross the Cape Horn by kitesurf. He is also a philanthropist & actively promotes the Green Cross, of which he is an ambassador.

Safety is a Necessary Concern for Kiteboarding (Kitesurfing)

Safety is a Necessary Concern for Kiteboarding (Kitesurfing)










Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) August 1, 2006

The American Kite Surfing Association (AKSA) is making international insurance coverage easy to secure with instant confirmations online and via email. For those that are participating in any hazardous sporting activity (so long as it is solely for leisure, recreational, entertainment or fitness purposes), a Sports Rider Coverage is absolutely essential. To register for this important coverage a special web page has been created exclusively for AKSA members: http://www.eglobalhealth.com/aksa.html.

According to Logan Long, president of AKSA, “It is irresponsible for our members to travel abroad and participate in this exciting but risky sport without proper insurance coverage. It is for this precise reason that AKSA has aligned with eGlobalHealth Insurers Agency, LLC and MNUI to provide the best sports rider insurance coverage available today.”

The four programs being offered to AKSA members include:


The Atlas Series: Short-term health insurance for individuals traveling outside their Home Country.

Whether traveling for business or pleasure, the Atlas plan is ideal. Packages are available from a minimum of 5 days up to a maximum of one year. At no additional cost, the Atlas Series adds coverage for Emergency Medical Evacuation, Acts of Terrorism and Complications of Pregnancy. http://www.eglobalhealth.com/aksa_atlas.html

The Atlas Group Series: Short-term international health insurance for 5 or more traveling abroad.

The Atlas Group series is tailored for groups of 5 or more US and non-US Citizens traveling outside their Home Country for 5 days up to one year. The perfect plan for vacation groups, missionaries, students and business executives featuring Emergency Medical Evacuation, coverage for Acts of Terrorism and Home Country Medical Coverage. http://www.eglobalhealth.com/aksa_atlas-group.html

The Atlas Professional: International health coverage for frequent travelers of business or pleasure, taking multiple trips throughout the year.

The Atlas Professional is available to the frequent leisure or business traveler and their families who require a 12 month comprehensive medical policy with coverage for multiple trips of 30 days duration or less. If one maintains medical coverage in their home country, the Atlas Professional is designed to take the risk out of international multi-trip business or leisure travel. http://www.eglobalhealth.com/aksa_atlas-pro.html

MultiNational Accident Plan (MAP): The first comprehensive personal accident plan for international travelers.

MAP features high limit Accidental Death and Dismemberment and high limit Permanent and Total Disability insurance - including coverage for most acts of War and Terrorism. This plan may be purchased alone or as a supplement to any other product and is available for any country in the world. No underwriting is required.

http://www.eglobalhealth.com/aksa_accident-insurance-plan.html

All plans are underwritten by Lloyd's of London which provides accident and health insurance to over 1,000,000 people in 100 countries. Lloyd's currently enjoys an A rating from Standard and Poors and is highly qualified to protect AKSA members on their next international trip.

MultiNational Underwriters (MNU) is the exclusive administrator for all the insurance plans offered mentioned above.

American Kite Surfing Association is the leading organization for kite surfers in North America. The purpose of the enterprise is to bring heightened awareness to this fast-growing, dynamic, and fun sport.

Kiteboarding (Kitesurfing) Schools Researched by AKSA

Kiteboarding (Kitesurfing) Schools Researched by AKSA










Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) June 17, 2006

Kiteboarding is one of the fastest growing watersports. In order to keep up with the growth in the sport, it is important to have organizations that teach the basics and safety aspects of the sport. Kiteboarding has a history of having several fatalities a year. This is not a sport that should be attempted without instruction. American Kite Surfing Association has researched numerous schools and the instructors and has come up with a database of over 500 links to different schools, manufacturers, and retailers within the industry.

ASKA is considering working with and endorsing some of the major schools within the industry. AKSA researchers have found that many schools are small scale and do not wish to grow their organizations. Other schools have expressed interest in expanding; however, are not sure how to do so.

Information on these schools is available exclusively to AKSA members.

This dramatic interest in the athletically demanding sport has given AKSA founders encouragement about the value of their newly founded organization. Logan Long, co-founder of the association was not surprised by the results; “It’s just simply the biggest adrenaline rush available. The combination of air, water, land, wind power, physical strength and balance the force of nature are the qualities that attract Kite Surfers.”

American Kite Surfing Association is the leading organization for kite surfers in North America. Founded in 2006 by two extreme sport enthusiasts, membership is anticipated to exceed 30,000 before the end of the year. The purpose of the enterprise is to bring heightened awareness to this fast-growing, dynamic, and fun sport. A vast array of information, products, and techniques are available to the visitors of the AKSA website, http://www.kite-surfingusa.com. After more than a decade of popularity through Europe and Australia, active North American extreme sport athletes are recognizing the maximum adrenaline rush through kite surfing. According to Cathi Long, co-founder of AKSA, “The exhilaration of hang time in kite surfing is unbeatable…kite surfers are simply the sexiest athletes.” AKSA is researching kiteboarding schools within the industry to provide its members with quality information about which schools are the best and which are the worst.
