Here are our three ultra marathon runners! 8)

It was incredible seeing the effort these guys and so many more who unfortunately couldn't get on the podium put into the competition. We can warmly congratulate everyone on the leaderboard for his or her personal performance and being part of this discipline, and hope to see them stay this active on WOO, logging height or finding new paths for them to push their riding and compete with friends on the leaderboards :bye:

In an incredible turn of events, one of the legends of kiteboarding has returned and taken current top spot on the WOO Worlds leaderboards, also setting a new European Record!! Looks like the cold and windy conditions in Denmark treated him well.

Congrats to Aaron Hadlow! :thumb:

How are the even able to hold a 9m kite by 50+ kts, I can't hold my 10 above 35kts and even if I know he must have tons of experience jumping, he is primarily a freestyler but he goes for a 15min session and get the 2nd highest jump ever recorded that's so impressive.

Lewis interviewed Aaron and there is some good insight from Aaron on how he achieved that jump and why he only round for 20 minutes:

For all the freeriders out there...there is a fun discipline for you!

Have you ever tried to draw a heart with GPS? - Best/most creative entries will win $1'000, $500, $250 :naughty:

All you need to do is use your phone or apple watch or garmin and record a session with WOO, using #wooworlds and #love when uploading

Here are some fun ones we have received thus far:
Question: I have a wear OS 3 watch. How do I record the track? Is it by toggling "enable gps" in the Woo settings app on the watch? Is the GPS-track then automatically logged to the session?
