Highest jumps

Postby patrick28 » Mon Oct 07, 2013 10:35 am

Jumps on video looks pretty impressive. Yet wonder what are the highest jumps what can be done with kite and board? I can't get even close to these :roll:
But what experience others have? Recorder on unrecorded.

Perfectly timed kicker makes for an amazing boost...

I had not noticed that!

No way is that more than 28-30knots.
