i think the height is the key. Kiteboarding is like playing golf, you need alot of balls :-)

Just amazing, jaw-dropping.... My guess is that the position of the cameraman is around 12 meters higher than sea-level. So he goes up around 15 m...

Check kitecinema.com for some more footage of Len10 at his homespot Noordwijk.

I heard that he is now ripping it up in IJmuiden with 9 Bft. People are telling that the kiteloops are like never seen before. Let's hope that footage will also soon come online on kitecinema.

damn thats insane, I couldn't imagine doing that. Hes just got so much control over the kite. I know riding in cold nasty conditions with current sucks for trying stuff too. I give him lots of credit for pullling that off so smoothly.
