《Bering Strait Expedition @ Maurice Lacroix》

The “Maurice Lacroix Bering Strait Expedition” team, headed by Swiss kiteboarder Geza Scholtz, made a first attempt last year to cross the Bering Strait by kiteboard, under the motto “Follow your convictions”, in the process attempting to make history by setting a new world record. “Follow your convictions” demonstrates Maurice Lacroix’s determination to follow its own visions. After almost a month of pushing the limits of endurance, the expedition had to be called off due to poor weather conditions. Now Geza Scholtz, his brother André and Constantin Bisanz (Austria), are making a second attempt. They have to travel 100 km by kiteboard, which means between six and eight hours non-stop. But the adventure starts even before the crossing. Such an extreme athletic performance requires a preparatory phase lasting several months, with daily training sessions. You need to be physically and mentally fit to stand a chance against the wild waters, at temperatures of just 2-3°C.
