I'm just going to spill my guts right now and say something probably a little mean, but....How do people even believe this is real from the first place? Especially some aviation enthusiasts? It looks so fake. I could tell it was fake from the getgo. Just look at the plane!
Feel free to let me know if that was to harsh.

Not harsh at all, but to some folks here at work - it looked real. I dismissed it as a fake the minute I saw it, but I just wanted something to prove to them that it was indeed a fake (Maybe a commercial or something.
Beside the kite flailing off the wingtip - is there anything else (beside the window/cheatline) that looks blateantly fake?

This video is a hundred percent fake.But as a person who has kite-surfed before it could be possible if the aircraft was a little lower.A mate of mine was using his set up one day,all of a sudden this breeze caught the kite as he was surfing and lifted him roughly 50 feet out of the water and slammed him into a sandune 5 seconds later.Funny to see but very sore.After seeing this with my own eyes i could see how it could be possible if an aircraft was lower.any one want to try out this theory?

I can see how this could be faked. People windsurf at Castle Island in Boston all the time, and that is right along the approach path into BOS, although not quite as close to the airport as they were. I'm sure there would be serious restrictions if the planes at that particular airport were close enough for that to happen.
