Check out Kevin Langerees video of when he jumped 28.3m. There are several first person views of him jumping way over the top of other peoples' kites, plus video from the beach of him going an absolute mile. Thats not to say it's proof but it makes the claim extremely believable.

Yes maybe video its not a proof too...not easy...but maybe in the future they will invent a real device to mesure height fully tested with reality test scientific ....and not a approx sistem easy to arrange fantascientific jump for people with ego problem

If I'm not mistaken Luis pastore says that his woo is broken.

"ante todo yo no pretendo enganar a nadie mi salto mas alto fue de 12.5 si leen el titulo de mi seccion se daran cuenta que los 21.8 me dan risa pero ademas en esta misma hay 2 saltos de 13mtrs seran verdad"

that's from the 23.8m jump from last week.

I don't think it's a big deal if a woo is broken that can happen. What is more troubling is how the woo3 seems to give consistently 10% more height than the woo2. What's next the woo4 gives you another 10%? That's their business model?

Wonder which Woo K Langeree used because his jumps do look like 25m+ on the video.

The woo scientist analyse the jump but avoid to do a reality test of their device...but come on its a fun device to use with friends and its not correct but they will delete from the app if u play to much...ridiculous :jump:
Thank u god some people start to wake up

And since that has posted within the last hour he has posted up a 26m jump session. Hilarious!

Oh my God you are getting boring. You hate the device. We get it.

Sure, maybe when Woo says 18m it isn't really 18m exactly, but two devices on two boards, one says 18m and the other 10m, you can be confident that they guy or gal with 18m is jumping better.

If you want science GO DO IT. Good god man, are you an idiot? Just borrow a woo, set up a harness to simulate a jump of 10m and run some tests. Do the same for 12m, 14m, 10m with a rotation, with an invert. Measure record and post your results.

In the time you sit on your keyboard you could have run a thousand tests.

I personally ran some tests with the Woo 1 and PIQ, they showed the same heights more or less. Lots of my friends ride with Woo 1, 2 or 3 and a PIQ, they show similar results. Get over it. Please. For the love of God, stop moaning, stop typing moronic rubbish. We all understand your argument, you've repeated it a million times. We just don't care. It works good enough.

Please -- test it yourself.

I suggest you hit your local gym with a climbing wall and use a pulley system to figure out some science.

Come to us. Armed with results. Facts. Figures. Charts. Graphs. Something worth typing about.

I'm not sure how woo determined he was cheating the device. Why couldn't it just be broken?

maybe he tried woo on a kite trick?
I have heard of it during the woo1 times.
Basically you tape woo to a wingtip, let the kite bump against the water while riding, then send it hard then bump again...
Only woo1 did not register 1-2 meter jumps..
In any case, the guy posted numerous sessions and never attempted to correct and delete them.. Given his track record he should have known the difference between 10 and 25meter jumps... So this is pretty much a definition of cheating in my book given the wind conditions there. Regardless of whether HW problem or clever hack.
