Testimonials

Christophe Ribot
Founder & owner of Miamikiteboarding Inc Examiner IKO
For children education

“It’s in our culture and mentality : from the very beginning , Miamikiteboarding has always been promoting the sport to the community and the media through unique events : Key West/ Cuba Crossing in 2002 ( the guinness record for the longest distance then ) - Kite For Girls in 2004 ( first women-only kiteboarding event in the USA ) - Miami Kite Masters since 2006 - ( largest gathering in Florida ) We are a small group of Miami Foilboarders totally passionate with this new technology in kiteboarding and all fond of watersports and anything related to the Ocean. When we met with Maxime Nocher , and he asked us to help him finding a boat to cross the Gulf Stream, we naturally loved the idea and envisionned an opportunity to promote our sport and the environment we cherish and share all ."

Miguel Hernandez is founder and director of Oceanvida Foundation. He is a certified teacher and a graduate of Florida International University with BA and MA degrees. He is an avid waterman who loves to windsurf, standup paddle, kiteboard, kayak and snorkel.

In his words:

“We are always looking for opportunities to bring people in contact with the ocean; to promote conservation, non-motorized watersports and healthy lifestyles. I’m thrilled that this crossing is going to do just that.”
