I believe the initial claim was 2-4 knots (according to the meter at KHK that sits 40+ feet in the air, with random witnesses to confirm) on an SUP in the flat waters in front of Kitty Hawk Kites.
The video being referred to now, had SUPA on video calling out 4 knots steady, which is now a steadily growing number (currently at 11knots?) when on the water.
What it does prove, is that comparisons that are not confirmed by any technology, done by parties with an agenda on both sides, and all things not being equal at all (lineset lengths, boards types and sizes, and rider body weight)...makes for a pretty useless comparison.
Other than the very general information that both kites flew, and that lightwind kiting is boring.
I am not trying to be facetious or anything, but try to use common sense.
Disregard that it was Dimitri who made the claim.
2 knots. Would you think you could fly a kite in 2 knots? Given what you know about kite weight, resistance, and how much energy there is in 2 knots ie. 3 mph.
And if the case is that suddenly the designer of Epic kites made this extraordinary discovery of anti gravity matter, why isn't the other companies that he designs for also all over it?
I've said it before I am willing to test, but I will not pay shipping anywhere. 2 knots. I can test that.
Also if you find light wind kiting boring you should try a raceboard
