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

Maybe I do a “New Trick Award” and offer 5000 USD...powered by kiteforum.com ?
Thats a good idea. I assume the riders would be able to submit their own trick of choice from the competition (rather than people on the forum picking and choosing)?

of course their own. I don't want them to kill themselves doing something WE want.
For such risky tricks you need to have 100% confidence.

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.

still looks higher than a normal position of someone on the beach...specially the 2nd picture...
Well.. Thanks for the compliments but I'm only human. :D My feet were in the water and so were the feet of my buddies who took these shots on January 31st right at the waterline.

No excuses! We want to see you lying on your belly on the beach in the future. Thank you for your cooperation. :advise:

Just saying: taking the shot from lower down makes the jump look more spectacular - doesn't mean you're obliged to do it! :allbegood:
