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.

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 commenting on height but yes going over wave make sense or some rider also do a pre pop routine before going for it, they slightly flatten board going a feet up and as soon as they hit water crank board and send kite hard.
though looking at height number it's more consistent like rider going off the break water and hitting a ramp.

So I looked back a month ago when his results started going crazy and the comments go he even states (Google translation):

"If they change it for 3.0, I delete the section"

So from that statement it's either a WOO 1.0 or 2.0.

A few weeks ago this guy did not jump higher than 11 meters. He has been jumping from one record to another for a week.
He cheats and he is not a sportsman but a pathetic man who needs help.

He just needs to post some video if he is THIS dedicated...shouldnt be hard to find someone willing to film you during these epic jumps! Think he just likes the attention and unfortunately WOO decides to do nothing...finally some free advertising not relating to their dump prices for the WOO 3.0!

Don't GPS watches give altitude? Wouldn't that sort of settle it?
No. Most GPS watches actually use the atmospheric air pressure (i.e. a pressure gauge) to measure height. GPS is very good for measuring horisontal distances but very poor for vertical (or inclined) distances.

ANd I dont think the atmospheric pressure can be used for measuring the height (to many problems with gust, sensor holes filled with water etc).

Some GPS wathces will be measurign things like "running dynamics" where they measure e.g. your vertical "bouncing". That is measured by an accelrometer - just like the woo, piq etc.
