Is the "on snow" the important element you are looking? Many other >110km/h speed records are on clean lake ice.gurke wrote:anyone knows someone who was faster than 120km/h on snow by Ski and Kite and logged this by gps?
I think 84.3 makes you the fastest "unofficial" kiter on the plannet!... The world record for kite buggy is 84.2 mph. Until now I have not heard of anyone going faster than that official or otherwise. .....Hardwater Kiter wrote:Yes there are people faster than you. Not many but a few. Some by choice and some by chance.
Last year you would have been the fastest in the Hardwater Kiting GSR

My top speed for 2014 was 123.28 kph. https://youtu.be/E1LNyyfpKzc
The only speed session I got for the season. Like you said conditions have to be just right and it's often a waiting game.
My official best is 76.6 mph. (2014) Unofficial is 84.3 mph.(2012)
Per rules of the GSR all official speeds are recorded on no less than 2 gps units (I use 3) and the data has to be downloaded and scrubbed and verified by an independent 3rd party. (We use KA.72.)
My unofficial is what it is because it happened at the end of the day and 1 GPS lost power, another was broken in a crash. The third captured the entire session and the data was scrubbed of spikes and verified. But it is only one GPS, so the 84.3 doesn't count per GSR rules.
Someone sent us the link to your video not too long after you posted it on youtube. It's always nice to see the speed from an outside perspective. AND THE SOUND! I love the sound. It's unmistakable.
This season you should join the ranking. It's a good time and it's fun to see how you stack up compared to others. Frustrating too. You obviously have an interest in speed (which is a rare thing it seems) and you can handle it. But you need to find a flatter area. Using an incline disqualifies as it isn't pure wind driven kite power getting you the speed, gravity is helping a bit.
Great video though. Looks like some nice riding and the surface looked like primo rock solid edgeable styro.
