You have to remember that using a raceboard is cheating

Not impossible at 7.5kn....but cut the power in half and make it 5kn....
...then only BS gets on plane @105kg w/15m2 kite

You are in a full wetsuit so it is cold
You did good getting up on the board
The wind is around 7.5 knots and that is very respectable
That is double to power of 5kn
You can definitely tell the wind when you get on the outside of the bay that you started in
If it was 5kn the kite on your waterstart would not have pulled you
You are talented to get going with a small 15 at you weight...honestly congrats
Thank you for sharing...keep enjoying your LW passion
It does look ....feel...measure..like it's 5 but it's obviously ...."knot" that wind speed
However do not try to beat Dimitri's epic claim of 2-4kn w/ @16.5m2 Infinity + Stand Up Paddleboard
He is the undisputed Champ
