that's a sweet jump!

Too bad no land based camera to see this nice flight.

Amazing jump !
Real 12 seconds flight !!!!
I think he not megalooped in general.
Maybe he simply looped or helilooped or even not ?
Seems much longer jump than Sam Ligth 70 meters (only 6 seconds duration jump), probably there was something more than 120 meters if duration jump of 12 seconds?
As he landed very deep in another side on water.

On Olly's facebook thread about the jump was a map which showed 167m distance. I think the map was by Tone?

But about the map there are water level difference on map and live video so maybe better estimation is 150m [or 165 yards or 490 feet or 105 horse bottoms for non-SI]

I think the place was this

That is awesome!
Threading the needle through the pylons and jumping a bunch of fences too......
Jumping in offshore gusty wind
Good wholesome risk in this jump!

He Heli loops two times at the end...watch his arms pulling hard.

150+ m sounds a lot. Doesn’t look that much in the video...but could be due to the fisheye lense?

Checked that link to the map.
I give it max (!) 100 m

Toby, you see the fences going to sea on map and video. Closest shoreline on lift-off to tip of wave breakers at sea where on video you see he landed gives 150+ meters. That is direct line and jump trajectory is always curved.

Use google's measure distance tool to see.. On my own experiments I get 150m

Here is the pic from FB by Tone..

With this jump Olly prooves that he definitely should be selected for this year Kota.
Twice longer distance and longer air time thab Sam Light jump few days ago.
I think LEI kites manifacture mafia and rider simplly not allow for foils as in kota will be perfect clear that Olly with flysurfer foil will do twice longer and and twice duration jumps and maybe event higher jumps comparing with all best selected pro LEI.
No, noir Cabrinha, Duotone or Naish will allow this as also jury where only LEI brands supported kiters.
Keep Olly going, the true will come any way!

A99 - also, Olly jumped 28 woo-meters from flat water with same Soul kite. Other leaderboarders jump that height with ocean kickers.. Woo went nuts or he really did that height?

Remember, he could choose any kite from sponsor quiver and he selected the Soul..
