We have discussed this locally, as it is not easy to be as fast as windsurfers.
But HOW fast can you rig a LEI kite ?
If you leave the lines on, you will save time (when it goes right).
But as most dont, maybe we should have two "contests" - one when you rig with lines attached, and one where you have to attatch the lines.
The same question could go for packing down - HOW fast can you pack a kite and bar down, and in the bag ?
To be fair, I think we should talk about medium kitesizes, that is around 8-10m2 sizes, and not smaller nor bigger.
My guess is, it will be just under 2 minutes when lines left attached, and just over 2:30 when lines are mounted.
Not in average, but for the REALLY fast ones
For derigging I think it will be somewhat over 1 minute, up to 2 minutes (till the kite is deflated, lines rolled up, and kite + bar in the bag and closed), for the fast ones.
Mostly theory and some experience, but lets see what you guys and girls can do ?
Video required of course, but easy to make if you think you are fast
For comparison, the Danish Windsurfer Kenneth is quite fast:

Interesting to see how fast LEI kites in the medium sizes 8-10m2 can be rigged up and down ?
Lets see your "records", no matter if fast or slow
