High aspect/high projected area kites are typically better in this regard. Low aspect 'bucket' kites typically sit deeper with grunt and faster turning.
There is plenty of middle ground and 'bragging rights' (highly dependent on the board/rider) so the real test is effective upwind VMG.

Yes a record and MYTHBUSTING because the speed of the SUP looks high for 2 to 4 knots of wind.
And a creditable answer concludes the bottom line above
"if that is really aerodynamically possible to fly & ride an inflatable kite with our current technology in that"
