14-year-old kiteboarder crosses the English Channel

A 14-year-old teenager became the youngest person to kitesurf across the English Channel.

Adam Farrington rode his kite from Swanage Beach, in England, to Cherbourg-Octeville, in France, in five hours and 19 minutes.

The schoolboy from Ferndown battled rough seas, 25 mph winds, and had to dodge a few large container ships as he navigated the busy shipping lane.
