The 8.1g was his hardest landing of the session that day, not necessarily the biggest jump.
No shit....
If you took 1 minute to check, you would have Saved the effort of writing that and spared me time to write this....

It's too funny the readings.
I stood on the 7th floor of an apartment block and have never ever seen 1 kiter match it and I was there when this jump took place...
It's definitely high, impressive and life threatening but not even 7 stories. So why does woo not just fix it, cause 11 stories is a lot more than the 5-6 stories I estimate it really at.

Did you notice the beach is lower than ground floor on your appartment block ? :bye:
I agree some Woo devices are not reading the jumps accurate.

For sure but it's not 4 stories.
It doesn't take away from the fact that he did the highest jump with the device that any other kiter has done with it.
Therefore the statement is accurate that of all the woo riders he has indeed the highest jump.

It would be awesome to actually know how high they go cause it is incredible to see.

Are we questioning again the actual height? So boring...

It can be 1 or 2 meters more or less, but again for a boy of around 18 years old, Maarten is doing pretty impressive things, don't you think?

At least for me, as I get best to 14-15 meters at the moment.

I think 34.8M is F.. AWESOME!

But that is just my humble opinion.

If course impressive his jumps. Still we all know that woo3 adds about at least 20 percents real hight. There guy who stand on 7th floor write real his impression and thats is clear that you can deduct 20percents from 35 meter and deduct 2 meters from ramp wave and you get real 26m maximum. Still its more higher than 7th floor.

That's real BS since the update I think few months after the release the differences are minimum...but he if you would like to stick to the idea and it gives you a better feeling, feel free to think of it that way.
I've seen readings above AND below but all are minimal I would say...saying 20% just makes you a joke...just saying

the guy can jump, thats for sure,
the megaloop and boogieloop on his Insta from last weekend are in the 20-25m range i'd say...so when just boosting he should be able to go bigger
