In our times, when everyone has video camers in phones and etc such woo records not valid without video recording proof, sorry.
There must be official rules or opion what high recording in our times not valid without video.

Heck, I would just like to see the video of somebody launching a 9m R1 in 45 knots.

It's a Woo record. Who knows how high it really was. Everyone that has one knows how (un)relible it is. If he was using mine, it would miss all the highest jump ;). That being said, from what he has shown, chances are he jumped as high as anyone ever did.

Yep, also would be great if someone does have a video, something like mashing these together.

Yesterday without knowing of the woo record, I saw a Video of Jamie with a R1 9m!!!!!!

I do Not know ,If that is from Yesterday woo record, but for sure IT was Impressiv....

I even checked what a R1 is, and figured that it is not the right Kite for me.......



BUT CAN NOT FIND THAT VIDEO AGAIN
