Kite surfers jump pier Answered
A story for Eric...
Two kite surfers from West Sussex took advantage of strong winds on the south coast to realise an ambition to jump over Worthing pier.
Jake Scrace, 25, and Lewis Crathern, 24, had been planning Monday morning's jump for three years but had to wait for perfect weather conditions.
Carpenter Mr Scrace, who makes kite boards, and professional kite surfer Mr Crathern are both from Worthing.
Between them they have 16 years' experience in the sport.
They took off from Goring to the west side of Worthing in gusts of wind that were more than 40mph, and had two helpers on the beach.
