Here are a few videos from the AC Open kite races a few weeks ago.
It was cool to have millions of dollars of assets setting up a course for us :)

0:52 of the first video...the guys got lucky there...fins forward...close call.

There should be a safety rule...you get lifted of the water you have to get out of the straps.

Those fins are a killer...

that big LED counting down the time is a must have for all races IMO !
Great to see when you are approaching the start line!

does anyone organized / seen / experienced a "match race" competition between kiteboarders ? (just like in Americas Cup). It could be a great show

The first video was pretty much a match race between Johnny and Joey. Neck and neck sprinting to the finish when a kiter on port tack goes between them, forcing Joey to raise his kite and lose any chance of winning.

The best videos I have seen of course racing - especially the first one. Looks exhausting and right on the edge of control.
