R U sure the anemometer is calibrated properly?
Honestly, it is quite hard to believe, but I really wish it is true.

of course it has to be in ms... minimum vind for a kite to stay decently in the air is 5knots... comme on!!
If the video is no fake it's really impressive if you can go upwind on a 13m in 3-4ms (7-8knots)... even if the rider is light and the board big...

ok how about you contact Kaindl and tell Michael his windmeters are faulty.... Its BRAND NEW we havent had a faulty one back! Guys im sorry but its the dead truth.....Just accept it and be happy about it.

Reading is in KNOTS, Goshen is 65-70kg wet - yes he is light but this is still AMAZING!

Board is....ready for it?.... 130cm Underground Wavetray.

Im ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTED that this has been moved, kiteforum is now a sell out, i cant believe this. Will try to link from the main forum....

Peace

p.s. GUYS ITS IN KNOTS!!! ITS NOT FAKE! was taken 3 HOURS AGO!

Are the founder/Owner of Kite Power? One of the posts called you McCormack, and I see on the Kite Power web page you said "we have since evolved into the largest family owned kite business in Australia." Oh and you sell Best kites in all your shops.

So you have a lot to gain from this video don't you.

Why not use a screen name like "kitepower" Are you trying to pimp anonamously?

I hope this is a genuine video, but it sounds like there is more wind than you are showing on the annemometer.

funny funny funny :lol:

looks nice, but You must be wrong ...

cause the beaufort-index on that windmaster shows "3" while measuring actual "3.4 xx"

Therefore i guess we see a 3.4 M/S (in fact 7 knots - the very end of 3 beaufort)
You just need to zoom the video to see the 3 beaufort.


Furthermore, a 3.4 knots of windspeed does not cause THAT what You hear on the micro.

Once should have edit this video better to "show" kiteboarding in 3.4 knots.

Do you perhaps sell best kites in your store?
