Thats for sure :thumb:

But the most impressive is, he is jumping with only the front strap :o

Yiaks, I would never do that not even on my waveboard, when jumping - seen too many accidents when trapped one foot only (say if one strap breaks off suddenly) and the board twists around when landing "odd" :x :o :cry:

Awesome skills indeed :rollgrin:

Dude's got skills, but lets be honest. Only in kiteboarding will you see jumps on video with the edit right before landing... or more accurately crash.

I'm sorry, but that shit is lame.

If the editor of that clip is reading. Put a ton of the jumps with crashes together before the ones he landed to show progression, or a shorter clip of just the stuff he actually makes with a few crashes as out takes at the end.

I guess this applies to the first 30-40 seconds of the clip. After that (from 0:45 through 1:45) the dude lands/rides out over six jumps, and crashes/loses his foil twice. I've definitely seen worse edits where the only thing shown is the elevator ride up.

Quite impressive skill in what appears to be pretty light winds. It would be interesting to know the type and size of kite he is using and the actual wind speed.
