Puta madre! If you can't land, then you shouldn't fly.

Those speedsailing boots are really efficient compared to windsurfing gear. Incredible how fast the can go. But i still hope a windsurfer will get back the speedrecord :)

Joe: I completely agree. As The Wolf says about jumping: If you don't land it, it doesn't count!"

Madsurfer: I look at it this way: those pieces of the boat that are floating in the water next to the hull probably cost more than a full-on speed setup for windsurfing or kiting. If you sail a board or fly a kite you can fit all of your gear on (or in) a single car. For such small and comparitively simple equipment to give the Hydropteres of the world a run for their money is fantastic.

That being said, if they can get this thing fixed and get it up to 61 knots (70 mph)again, I'd think it would hold the record for awhile. That's WAY faster than any other sailor or kiter has managed.
