In this video wind nuking 55/60 knots, he is on 6m with 22m lines, you can clearly see that he is about to reaching maximum maximum lines 22m vertical height.

Dudes it all seems pretty legit. Maarten is absolutely a top top talent. His last record was 28.9 i believe.
He's 17y.o now so the post of Eckhart is very old (2 years is a lot)

Anyway conditions were 40kts+ and big waves all top riders were there.
Spot is misty cliff / witsand in cape town (s.a)
8m xr5 on 22m lines what he told me.

If anyone can do it this is your guy 👨🚀 so i would definitely not be surprised if it all turns out legit

i don't believe. Just in the same day, in different two locations suddently two 32+ jums, Simply Woo boostedsoftware for new year that people can talk about.
WHat is 32 meter jump, its real 12 floors house... its was just woo software greetings for 2019NY.
No the second post from IHNO etz. was fake, he never jumps higher than 15m while Maarten jumps 20m+ all the time with a previous record of 27.7m, you better believe this/him..

Hey, its misty clifs, this year previous world record comes from that palce (29.something m). It is an areay with high clifs around, maybe the wind direction was right and there was an extra lift coming from ascending wind? Who knows! But it is sure that those guys already jump 25+ in not so optimal conditions!

Very young boys will overtake very soon the top of kitesurfing.
This young guy in the Netherlands has just turned 13 years and will soon be heard. His Woo record is now 18.3m on flat water.

That's always been the way -- Lenten and Hadlow started young, the Richman brothers...

But there are now many more kiters and kitefathers who accompany their children with the sport.

If Maarten as you said is such talent and jumping always high, more than 20+ m, than why he (or his firends) not recording regulary his jumps and sessions with Goproo cameras, even if he riding in such places where is big chances to do height records. strange. Woo is not proof, video is best proof.
