How does that song go?
"Hot dog jumping frog - Alberque'

Clearly this is the ultimate jumping frog I wonder what kites he uses..

Oh look - Core there's a surprise.

24m is crazy high, but you can see the video doesn't look that much bigger than a regular jump. It's really difficult to properly film these huge jumps so they give you a feeling for just how huge they are. The problem is that the kiter is out there in space and your eye doesn't have anything else near him to give you a sense of distance. Always looks a lot more impressive in person.

I agree the video isnt great but there are a few jump where he is looking down on other kite, looks pretty big, 9m in 40-50 knots gust does the trick lol.
