New Woo jump record: 33.9m

Postby North_Wind » Sat Nov 16, 2019 7:31 pm

Congratulations to local rider Mike MacDonald who set a new Woo jump record -- 33.9m at kitebeach Cape Town today.

I think* I launched his kite ... does that make me famous? (there was so much sand in my eyes I could barely see what I was doing or who it was haha.)

The stoke is on here.

If anyone wants to come join the fun, get in touch. Our lodge still has rooms available and special deals between now and just before Christmas.

So 33.9 on Woo, that means about 13.9 in real life....?🤣

Really hard to photograph on the beach today ... sand flying everywhere. When I got home I showered and I had sand stuck around the side of my eyeballs.

I did get a screengrab from the Woo app and uploaded it to MS Drive. I added the link as a picture but it won't display on the forum for some reason. Maybe Toby can fix if he runs out of things to do. Sorry I am not good enough at IT.

The more coins you feed into the slot the higher it reads.
