Windsurfing from Fernando de Noronha to Natal

Two Brazilian windsurfers, Diogo Guerreiro and Flavio Jardim, windsurfed all the way from the island of Fernando de Noronha to Natal, a distance of 370 km (about 230 miles). The journey started on September 26th and finished on the 27th; the surfers were not accompanied by any boat.
Diogo and Flavio applied for an entry to the Guiness Book.

The event had the support of the Tourism Secretary of Natal, and showed that Natal is one of the best places in the world for practices of windsurf and its more radical version, kitesurf.

Actually, at present, the beach in the State of Rio Grande do Norte where these sports are more popular is São Miguel do Gostoso, about 120 km North of Natal.
In the neighbour State of Ceará, a beach called Cumbuco has been known for a few years already as being one of the main places in the world for practice of kitesurf.
