Indeed - such a shame...

Fullscreen does not work (have never worked) not on Vimeo nor on Youtube for kiteforum :(

So you have to click to open directly on Vimeo or Youtube first, and then click fullscreen :-?

So many times I dont even watch videos, because of this (small, true) extremely annoying error :roll:

I have not seen any other forums where you can not click a video up in fullscreen 8)

Would love when (if) this error is solved some day :rollgrin:


Apart from that - awesome massive jumps, and I think that most of those commenting something like "should that be something ?" got NO idea about what these guys are actually doing out there in these conditions - nor have they been there live.... (or just over estimating their own skills by huge margins)

:D Peter

At first look I might agree, if I knew nothing else...

But having been in CapeTown the last 14 days for wave kitesurfing only, and wind EVERY single day (4-8m2 kites), and often waves bigger and better than at the contest - there is "plenty" of space and waves for everyone, every day, at many spots, so no reason to think it is a waste to go huge with a King Of The Air competition - as you can ride waves all the time down there, but how often are the worlds best gathered in such perfect high jump conditions ?

Perfect scenario IMO, could not be written better by any writer or movie maker :naughty:

Hope we get some better videos soon. Watching 3min of guys just boosting and just throwing loops gets boring fast.

Glad to see Big Air is back in style. Unhooked freestyle is fun, but nothing puts a smile on your face like boosting 50 feet! :thumb:
