Kite surfing (boarding) speeds

I never hear any conversations about how fast people go on water besides the frozen variety. Do you water guys ever carry a GPS with you and keep track of your average or max speeds? I don't kite on soft water so I often get curious how fast you soft water guys are going when on a kite and board. What's average? What's considered fast? It would be cool to see a speed ranking for the soft variety of water, not just the frozen lake kind of ranking.

SS Turbine 17m
SS Rally 14m
SS Rally 12m
SS RPM 10m
SS Rally 8m
SS Rally 6m
FS Speed 3 15m dlx
FS Peak 2 6m
Ozone Frenzy 9m
Ozone Access XT 6m
PL Farc 1200

What I ride:
Home brew buggy
Volkl race tiger DH 210
Dynastar DH 218
Blizzard Cochise 185
Steepwater 179 twin tip
Aboards Reverse 161

That's some crazy stuff right there...

I have no interest in speed runs, but am curious about my normal speeds, I need to put my Garmin to work...

Yeah... I got a kite. Or two...
