Pascal Maka

Pascal Maka is a French windsurfer who broke the outright speed sailing record in 1986, and again in 1990.

Maka broke the outright speed sailing record in 1986, at Sotavento, Fuerteventura, with a speed of 38.86 knots, using a Jimmy Lewis board and a Gaastra sail. This was the first time a windsurfer had broken the outright speed sailing record, which had previously been held by multihulls.
