I have Series 2 and I kite with them all the time already 6 months. I wear them above the wetsuit in rough North Sea without issues.
I made a Velcro band myself and it works perfectly.
One thing to remember- if you kite in salt water or beach with small grain sand remember to flush your watch in fresh water after session - keeps salt water from drying out and forming crystals underneath the rotating crown. Sand grains can get there as well, so hints remember to rinse it and you are good.

Quick question, on the apple watch can you run say Strava to record your kitesurf and the Woo app at the same time?

You're wearing it above your wetsuit with no protection whatsoever?

And multiple apps can run on the watch, so Strava and Woo should work simultaneously.

Yes, without protection.
