2nd World Record on a motosurf: Do as many circles as possible in a minute
The second world record is achieved by Louis Allen, one of Jet Board Limited England instructors who competed against another motosurf instructor, Paul Desmond. They had to do as many circles as they could in a minute ... most 360's in 60 seconds with a Minimum of 14 to make record books!
All of it was really just for fun and it was about introducing the boards and sport to the younger generation. Having said that it seems like their parents are more interested than them!
