Florian Gruber wins the battle on Fehmarn as 500 kiters started the brutal kitesurf marathon race.
In just 1h6m20s, Florian Gruber crossed the Baltic Sea straight to the Danish coast and back to Germany to be crowned 2015 Red Bull Coast 2 Coast champion. After a mastered turn around the buoy at the Danish coast, Gruber just raised his speed on the return leg to Germany’s Fehmarn island and comfortably took to top step on the podium.
The challenge was hard, but the conditions even harder for the 500 participants who faced the challenge to ride the 40km distance across the Baltic Sea without rest.
