CAPE TOWN - Hundreds of kite-surfers from across the world are preparing to set a new Guinness World Record at Dolphin Beach near Cape Town.

They are all taking part in the Virgin Kite-surfing Armada which was started by business mogul Sir Richard Branson in 2013 to raise funds for charity.

One Movement director Tyrone Rawlins says they are hoping to beat Spain who currently holds the record for The Largest Parade of Kite-surfers' with 353 kiters.

"We've just registered over 400 [people] for South Africa. The wind has come up and we have quite a spectacle here at the beach will all the kites and everyone is excited to get going."
