A new record has been set! Bernd Flessner met his toughest challenge - and was rewarded with the well-deserved honour of being the first person to ever surf across the German Bight from Norderney to Sylt. 140km, 4 hours on the open water - it’s a never-before-seen sensation!
His intensive preparation certainly paid off and Flessner mastered the whole journey with ease and brilliance despite some troubles with the light wind and a hole in his sail.
After his triumph, Flessner presented himself fully satisfied and was congratulated by family, friends and experts.
