And at the end you can see that kite is even flapping so its depowered. This 12 knots at least.
world's leading kitesurfing website
White caps start at about 7knots. You can get a variance though depending on how long and how strong the wind has been, what the swell is doing too. It is perfectly possible to have a short lull of no wind and then still have white caps. You will obviously feel this at the kite and the water can start to show signs of it.
Large wavelets; crests begin to break; foam of glassy appearance; perhaps scattered white horses
According to the scale used to determine when whitecaps start they do start at 7 knots https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beaufort_scale (Oops,post posting edit: I see someone has just posted this)
