Jet-ski World Record
An Auckland man has set a world record for the distance covered by jet-ski within a 24 hour period. Jeremy Burfoot rode his Sea-Doo jet-ski 2,287km during his record breaking session on Lake Karapiro. This compares to Croatian Ivan Otulic’s 29 record of 1,641km. Burfoot found himself tired by the end of the challenge, but experienced little physical damage thanks to his years of training. “The mental concentration was the hardest,” says Burfoot. “I am still doing laps in my dreams, so I hope that stops shortly!” Burfoot is no stranger to long-distance jet-skiing, successfully circumnavigating New Zealand in 26. Burfoot’s distance record is still awaiting ratification by Guinness World Records.
