hello the kite board speed record was smashed by a guy who recorded a speed avg around 46-48kts. That is fast on water and he was only doing it in around 5 inch -10inch of water and it was only 7 degrees at the time. Here is the follow link to see it for yourself... http://www.kitecommunity.com/index.php?o...=46&Itemid=4164 and u can look around for the forum issue.

have fun
