Awesome.. I remember when Fred held the record and I had a board made to his same dimensions.

Is my math correct?  52 knots = 60 MPH?  That's almost freeway speed. 
7'4 Jammer, 8'5 Soul Compass, 10'3 Blair, and several others

That's in Luderitz just up the road from Cape Town (1100km :)) - we got a bit of that wind as well - epic downwinders last couple of days in CT. Apparently Bjoern Dunkerbeck is there but couldn't get access to run as he is only signed up to go in a few days time - must have been spewing!

Don't forget back in 2010 kiteboarder Rob Douglas broke the outright speed record (at the time) at 55.6 knots.
