I'd swear that in my area all the claimed jumps should read in feet rather than meters ! Maybe a software glitch ?

If pro's in CT don't get up to 30m on a solid 40+ knot Cape Dr. wind with big clean kickers, I highly doubt this guy did it in Brazil's tropical 25-30 kts winds and flat water/no kickers.

Don't GPS watches give altitude? Wouldn't that sort of settle it?

My friend did recently a test between Woo2 and Woo3 on the same board. In 15 to 20 feet jumps Woo3 gave constantly 10% more height. Who knows which one is closer to truth but at least results were systematically different for each jump, repetitive.

Usually Woo registers waves as jumps of 1-1.5m. I believe so is here.

But what is weird if you look jump timestamps of 20+ meter jumps you see wave jump at the same time. For example 30m jump there is 2s wave jump 2s before high jump. And this pattern is with all over 10m jump that very weird 'overlapping' jump before main jump.

Not overlapping!
Maybe he jumped over a wave and then hit the kicker ?
If you have speed it is possible like this
