So...I'm the only one don't believing this video...I feel shameful ... :oops:

So if this 14 s jump is a hangtime jump..this 'really small' 7s jump, even so it looks higher an longer for me...

so maybe in hawai, time is the same as microsoft loading bars..

god, bless me if I don't believe naish...it remind me a discussion whith best about a high kiteloop, they finished to admit that it's was a toshop photo...taking a smile and saying : "it was a joke"... :-?

i agree the promo vid is stupid. doesn't give you enough time to actually see hwo the kite performs.

that Best photo was the then CEO jumping getting caught..and it was kind of an obvious one.

I am not sure why you would not believe this jump. I mean definitely impressive, but not impossible no? :-)

It also depends on any lifts or updrafts in the wind. Eric Eck's 'jump' lasted 40 seconds and I think he was only trying to hop over someone's lines on the beach.

Anyway, we hear you, and since there is no bullshit in that jump, here is the unedited jump at real speed. Yes, when Shawn is in the air it looks slow but this is real footage. When you jump that high, well the flight is steady!

That right there is why I dropped my windsurfing gear and picked up a kite... I wanna fly like that.
Won't happen but that's the reason :lol:

but the 14s long non promo unedited video where the kite is not even visable somehow does let you see how the kite performs :lol:

unedited video ... ?? ... so why the sound stop before the video... ? if the video is unedited, what is the reason someone would have to cut the sound before the video ? it's more work...

nop, sorry, big bull-shit for me ! I hope naish know it's a big joke, and should apologize.. or admit.

look at the small strap on the harness of the rider...during take off, it flags out wickly...and suddenly it stop to flag... the effect of twixtor should have been more progressive ;) !

Hi Damien,

It still looks wrong.

Maybe my language was bad and I shouldn't have called you out like that publicly but it still looks odd... looks slowed right down for most of the jump.

Sorry but you're not going to change my mind that easily

Tony
