Few days before, Cattelan showed that his GPS registered more than 58 knots over few metters. That was a clear message than kitesurfers were ready to win the putch over windsurfers and foilers. On october 3rd, that was done with 50.26 knots rattified for Cattelan. Few days after, Caizergues made better with 50.57. And that’s the news record to break.
