The definition of (strong) wind; humans vs kitesurfers

As a kitesurfer you’ve heard this probably already a thousand times: “Well… the wind is good for you right? I had to pedal hard on my bike”. And your answer is probably most of the time: “Uhh… there is no wind!”

It seems that humans and kitesurfers have a very different understanding of (strong) wind. That’s probably also the reason why there are no humans sunbathing on the beach when you are out on your 12m and still think that it’s still not so windy at all, while humans think a storm might be approaching… 😉
