At first look I didn't notice the shark, but if you look really closely in the lower left corner, you will be shocked!!!

Now I know what everyone will say, "Photoshopped". No way, dude!

Awesome shot. 30 foot at least! Wow. Now that's what kitesurfing is about, flying.

Awesome jump :thumb:

Dont care much about the kite nor size - but who is the rider ?

As that is all it comes down to IMO, the rider and not the gear :naughty:

Is it you johnjohn2103 - and I assume your name is John ?

Great :rollgrin:

And yes, we have had some VERY windy days here the last weeks now and then (around UK/Brittany/Holland/Denmark).

:D Peter

No one can really jump that high, clearly the original photo was altered. People should not believe everything they see on the Internet. So I ran some extensive analysis on the photo and removed the added layer to reveal how this was really done.

Good catch on the shark, I did not see that the first time either.
