Just to compare the footage from the video Mike put up from that world record session.

Really huge jumps for sure :thumb: , but not sure, if any of those jumps from the video were 34m? and if that jump was that actual world record jump which woo recorded 34,1m. But it was the highest in my opinion from the video.

If you compare from the picture, it depends were you take ground point and how tall is Mike. But if putting approximately 1,8m as his height, then this actual jump was 27m, if he is taller, then maybe 1-2m higher, is shorter, then 1-2m lower jump.

And how accurate is woo? everyone can make up their mind themselves :jump: . So I think it as Woo meters, not meters :-).

But congrats to Mike getting the new WOO world record.

Quick note on that from our end - as soon as we saw the record we asked Mike to get a friend on the beach to take some video footage. So, the video is NOT of the 34.1m jump, but of the 28.6m later in the session. We're, of course, equally bummed that Mike doesn't have one of those camera man friends with him, and are considering finding one in Cape Town to film him 24/7 also to unveil some of the secrets to boosting high :D

Needless to say, if there is one thing the video validates...dude can boooooooooost! :jump: 8) :jump:

Please one of Mike's friends tell him get the video. This is the second time he's been out woosting without a care for the video. A number is just a number! How about this one, 21. Or this one, 37. It's just a number. But a video lets you share the experience with all your friends. Get it on camera next time tks. Love the video he did get it's epic. But it sounds like it's just random chance there there was any video at all.

Will all the dicks stop saying World Record..

It's not sanctioned world record device because of its inaccurate recording and fails all the required tests of an official device :cool2:

It's like calling a Windsurfer a kiteboarder... both go in the water but one is gay :)

Jumped over the fence in my back yard yesterday, 3.2 meters confirmed by Woo. Am I now the world high jumping champion?

Now the real question is, do I buy a 7m 5 Strut but then, do I really want to go out in 40+ knots? 🤔

Good vid of the 28.6m boost. Makes you want to go there, doesn't it?

Nope


You want a 8m for that. That's when the fun starts :lol:

But the records are beeing jumped on a 7m XR6, since my quiver is messed up I kinda like the idea but first have to sort out my kite needs 😬
