New Challenge - VAKE World Championship SnowKite Enduro

ABOUT US

April 2016, four adventurers attempted to snow-kite over 200 km across Vatnajökull in Iceland, Europe’s largest icecap. This vast, uninhabited, frozen landscape is subject to extreme weather conditions and limited visibility, terrifying sink holes, crevasses and live Volcanoes at every turn.

Already an expedition of epic scale, the challenge is made more ambitious by the fact team member Sean Rose has a spinal cord injury, and is confined to a wheelchair.

Never before has a disabled athlete crossed Vatnajökull, let alone exclusively by the power of the wind!

The successful crossing on the 24th April 2016 was a Worlds First!

The team are all regular people, who not only want to overcome a personal challenge and realise a long held dream, but also raise awareness of the pioneering work of Wings for Life Spinal Cord Research Foundation, a charity who are committed to likeminded ambitious goals of finding a cure for spinal injury.
