Great Picture, congrats to Kevin
What I notice about these pictures is that they are generally taken from a height well above the water level, so that they actually visually minimize the height of the jump. Any pictures taken from water level?
yes, from water level it will look much higher!

It still looks a bit above water? Considering the height of a human...

Yes - those are not at water level. Water level would mean putting the camera at beach level (more or less) on the shoreline.

Jesse Ritchman real entertaining to watch. Extreme move should be more than a $1000

yup $1000 from a multi billion $ company for that kind of risk is a embarrassing , having said that i dont really agree that riders should put themselves on the line for $ without good consideration... look at fmx . so many dead riders now - hopefully not for the fame... saw a red bull fmx video recently mentioned about 6 top riders that had died.
