Re: Measuring jump height in a new way

I think that the most precise and reliable technique is either laser based method or radar. They can both perform very quickly and give instantaneous result. They are not so expensive either (for example, measuring the velocity of tennis ball during a tournament is done quickly by computing time bet...

Re: Sardinia vs Tarifa in May

I don't know about Sardinia, but Sicily is great. The spot of "Los Stagnone" is very good (very large lagoon). And the region also offer many cultural activities and the food is great. So I guess Sardinia will offer the same. Tarifa is also a great destination with also awesome food, cultural/histor...

Re: Woo3 and Nixon Mission

I also have a Polar M600 and I had to manually sideload the App to the watch. In order to to that, I follow this very detailed video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZ5PmM1p2eo I did exactly what this guy says and it works perfectly. The only difference is you have to download the old version of t...

Re: How To Heli Loop / Downloop / Landing Loop for big jumps big air | Get High with Mike

Yes. Basically park the kite at 1 or 2 after you've sent it and let your body swing under it. Then, after the apex (and when you swung under it), you pull on your front hand to make a downloop (front hand). If you want to make a kiteloop (back hand) instead, you should park the kite at 11 before yo...

Re: How To Heli Loop / Downloop / Landing Loop for big jumps big air | Get High with Mike

Very interesting and useful video.
However, I don't completely understand what he means by "park the kite". Do I have to keep the kite at 1 or 2 o'clock during the jump and then send the loop (and not keeping the kite at 12 during the jump). Is that so ?

Re: Woo Sports Updates?

Hey, here is a new alternative to live woo data during your session. I tried about 4 different Wear OS watches and it never worked right and was really hard to see. What Wear OS watch did you use ? I have a Polar M600 and except for the "peculiar/bulky" design, it works fine and connect well with t...

Re: Red Bull King of the Air 2020 - all info here

Angely .. I’m sorry but all PC aside (and I know this will upse lt some), she looked way out of her depth. That being said it’s better for the sport and women’s riding in general she was in it. I’d like to see more females give it a crack and have a seperate comp. I agree, she didn't manage to land...

Re: Red Bull King of the Air 2020 - all info here

I think we could have the exact same discussion about nationality. Many Dutch, South African and French in the contest... and at the end 2 British and one Danish take the podium :rollgrin:

Re: Exciting Changes for Red Bull King of the Air 2020

The problem with Airton, is how to judge his performance ? During the same heat, for example facing Liam Whaley, how to score very different tricks on different boards ? Not an easy task for the judges.
