Seems like Spithill wants to challenge Johnny Heineken to a little race. :P

Listing gear is bad, and you should feel bad.

I would personally love to see $10 million worth of sailing equipment and questionable athleticism be trumped by a true athlete behind the controls of a few thousand dollars worth of kite gear - it would be so awesome

for the record the kai lenny thing wasn't even a real race. Kai was on a surfboard.....I think Johnny on a foil around a race course might actually be close. of course...they are too scared to take them out in over 20knts anyway so whats the point.

Thanks Ramsey.

Kai and 72 was more of an "exhibition" for the benefit of Red Bull...
