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.
Please why so suspicious, have you already taken the effort to look at his YouTube channel/152 Woo sessions by yourself or have thought that these images might still come?
And if those images come you are going to tell us exactly how high it was?

My guess.... probably too busy having fun to give a s***!

Looking at his "WOO profile" this was the 7th time over the last 12 months he improved his personal best, with a 23,9 m jump being the first PR 11 months ago. He's probably not used to being expected to have somebody filming him yet. WOO is not proof, and 32 m sticks out a bit in various ways but that seems pretty talented and high jumping to me.

Woo is a game and he is winning the game. No need to criticize him for it. Certainly is a talent for the future.

He is probably too busy kiting and living the dream to be worried about what others think of him.

According to real stats that can be a recorded as a "World record"
Woo does not qualify because of innaccurcy and non reliability of devices..
Big jumps as usually...
Guess your height is just as efficient lol

He is really pro having in mind his age. But all knows that woo 3 adds at least 15-20 percents to real height. So, take his 32m and minus 20 percents and you have real 25 meters what is really very imprssive, by the way 12 times bigger height probably than he is in real life and more than bar lines. In our media age proof is video, photo and sertificated officialy measurement instruments. Woo is game toy with approx data. I honest suggest for Maartin to do video record from now all his hi wind sessions.

How do you want to measure or even proof the height based on a video?

Woo calculates by jump hang time. With normal speed video you can check woo's hangtime figure for starters. If woo reports 8s and video shows 6s it is outlier "jump".

Well fucking done. Some skill and balls are required to hit those numbers. Respect!
