ANDY LAUFER FULL POWER AT LUDERITZ

Watch Andy Laufer going flat out at the Luderitz speed challenge 2019 filmed by Miriam Rasmussen Windsurfing! Andy Laufer says – “Some nice and different angles filmed by Paul. Speed is up to 100 km/h, chasing the world record in hurricane winds. The slingshot just after the start is one of the most important parts of the run. You have to accelerate to at least 95 km/h within the first 200m in order to get a decent run. This corner is sooo much fun, your board and your whole equipment tend to lift off all the time. You need to have at least 15 kgs of lead on your back to counteract this pressure. If you manage to convert all the pressure from the corner into speed, the rest of the 500 m run is quite simple. Just keep the speed in those wind holes and hope that you even get a stronger gust just before the finish line. At the end – don’t forget your braking parachute :)”
