In the UK, they're about $1100, although there are 3 sizes and a lighter/stronger pro version. If you keep your eye open on eBay you see them from time to time.

With the dirtsurfer, about 9 mph.
with a mountain board, about 12mph.


there's no real upper limit to windspeed. I've flown in about 40mph winds. however if its gusty, its more hard work.

We've decided to go for a speed record. 50mph with the kitewing and dirtsurfer.

ANy ideas for location would be good

cheers
