If You like windsurfing You can be sure that You will love windsurfing on ice with a 4-blade sledge. The world has a new WORLD RECORD - 53.47 knots.

The sport is growing in Sweden and I sometimes wonder why windsurfers from the continent south of Scandinavia just go up and try it. If You are a windsurfer You will learn quick.

Here is the record of the american, Jeff Brown:

I was refused to comment this any more and to post a World record by Jeff Brown and now I wonder why?

I give it a new trye. Please check this fantastic new World record - over 53 knots with a 4-blade sledge on ice. I really recommend windsurfers to trye iceboarding. It is easyer and even more fun than windsurfing. Find some place with ice next winter and make a test if you like it!

Raw - If You go up north I promise it is worth trying! It easyer than windsurfing. The rig feals real light and the friction almost goes doawn to zero.

This sport is even more exiting ttan windsurfing. Today we had a fantastic day south of Stockholm with perfect ice, sun, 15 m/s and topspeed between 34 and 42 knots. It could be dangerous but You could minmize the risks looking like a hockey-player.

Pelegrin thanks for the invite. It will definately be on my to-do list in the very near future. We had a cold winter this year! It dipped into single figures about 8-9 degrees centigrade at least a few times. Our summers reach 50 degrees centigrade often so the only ice we see is in the freezer/refrigerator. I think that is what makes your ice surfing even more appealing to us here. It looks fantastic. Can not wait to try!
