All I know is that the IKITESURF has (Speed knots) that is what it says. And on the Radio that day they recorded 62 knots. Believe me it felt stronger then 45 knots when I was out there especially getting ripped by these gust that were coming in. Few friends were out there on their 3.7 meter Windsurfing and they had to abandon.
All I know is that is was nuking and if it was on the sound I would of never gone out. The reason we went out was because of the waves. And also the other reason was due to the people that were their to help us in case something happens.

Well it goes both ways on the speed by sensors. Plenty of times I've seen smoke on the water when the sensor only said 25 -knots or mph.
But if you were out trying to hold down a kite or sail you would know what it really was!

what you don't see is all the riders in the sound that day ripping it up in strong winds. all amatuers and knowing thier limits i'm sure.

man...part of the thrill of this sport for me is overcoming the elements.

whether it's cold 25-35 with gusts to 45 yesterday in 44 degree temps, or whatever.

i consider myself a very experienced water sport athlete, but not a pro. i do know my limits.

dude...take the water wings off.

next.
Classic overconfidence...

Yes you are correct Ikitesurf says MPH but it also says KNOTS when giving the forecast. They need to fix this :thumb:

Tom, A bunch of bananas have washed up on the beaches of the Netherlands. Maybe you should take it upon yourself to warn any unsuspecting kiteboarders of the dangers of kiteboarding amongst the bananas. Overconfident as they may be.

We should not take all the credit to come up with this product. Momi our designer has been working very hard also and same thing with the help of shops and different riders we were able to come up with this product.

Awesome.
Dimitry, how come you did not go on a TT?
I would think in those conditions you would be in more control, no?
Even though you seemed to be...sort of... :-)
...how cold was that? looked like it was freezzzzzing!
