Damn, that's some flat water!

Looks like a bit more than 4 knots up high though judging from that flag being straight out in the background at 0:45. Also, the sailboat rigging clanking in the background. Still really cool though!

IKA should still be behind The Olympic committee and fight for Rio to do at least a show, since there is nothing more attractive in the sailing world than kitesurfing.
And specially in such light wind, this is impressive!

Sure looks like 2 to 4
Has SUP'ing w/kite in those type winds been cancelled ?

Kite SUP just does not look right :-?

saw for the first time a guy playing around in my local spot a few days ago

He was using a 12 in conditions I did not even bother to get my gear to the sand, I was wow!

Think it make totally sense this to be the Olympic class
