Some of the biggest jumps I've ever done KevVlog3 #24

We found this massive patch of wind covering Cape Point so we decided to drive down to check it out. On the way down our car blew up and down like crazy and we knew it was ON. Arriving I tried to count all the whitecaps but that was close to impossible. I rigged my 8m pivot and off we went. Enjoy watching.

Wish I knew which day that was, I think I was at Platboom getting yanked around on 7m, and by the time I came back to Witsand they were gone. But who knows, the southern tip of the Cape can have very different conditions from Bloubergstrand and they clearly got it good with almost noone else out.

It was Wednesday 4th Dec, wind was 35-50+ knots. I arrived and spoke with Kevin just after he came out after his session with Lasse - Kevin was on 8m Pivot, Lasse on 8m Rebel. It was the same day Mike jumped 34.1m on his 7m XR6. Back set of waves was 5-6m. Lots of pros riding that day including Angely Bouillot and Josh Emanuel both being filmed on new 8m GTS and throwing some insane 20m+ megaloops. 4 guys posted Woo scores over 28m that day including Lasse.

Thanks jj83, that's a while I ago. I was under the impression Kevin posted his vlogs more promptly. Sadly I arrived that evening, so missed that day, but today was probably comparable, at least along Bloubergstrand.

It was strong yesterday for the Big Air Kite League but honestly can't compare to that day in Misty Cliffs. 25-40 knots yesterday vs 35-50+ knots in Misty.
