Incredible! Any info on what size kite and strength wind? Must have been really overpowered, but now I am inspired to try out my big kite again if this is possible!

He's got to be using some form of sea anchor. If you look at the kite direction relative to the wind there is no way he could avoid floating downwind without some form of sea anchor.

That is blatantly an anchored jump, otherwise he is Doctor Who and decided to temporarily bypass the laws of physics.

In the last few frames you can see what appears to be a line upwind of him snapping through the water.

Come on Toby,

so low traffic on kiteforum that it is necessary to push stupid fake videos, ...

... motivating beginners to do stupid things with kites or at least take them for stupid?

Unfortunately no "No Thanks" Buttom here. :roll:

Yeah, dragging something, a tethered bucket perhaps. If not, then my top hat off to him.

At some point in the video (at 0.55 and at 1.38), he seems to be going backwards (upwind).
How can you go upwind with a sea anchor?

Below the video, it says rider: Jon McCabe.

Here is another video of him.
