50ft easy to 70ft. Ok. You must have the world record for jump height.

Care to provide pictures.
For what it is worth:
My friends witnessed Noel jumping at Ft Pierce and said they had never seen anyone jump nearly as high ever. The wind was gusting over 40mph that day. Most guys just watched Noel.

Draz, Quite a few people were there including GK, Scott Harwood and about 15 - 20 others that could probably comment. One guy got video but I have not seen it yet. I know that while a few kites were in neutral I was jumping close to eye level with them.

The control that that kite has is insane. I had alot of fun riding with GK and all my other friends. Ft. Pierce ROCKS!!! :mosh:

That's awesome that you jumped that high. I'd still love to see pictures as that is much higher than I've ever seen anyone go or gone myself.(I may have gone 30ft a few times).

Don't lie... no one was watching Noel... admit that we all have an infatuation with watching pink kites...

In any case, the most impressive thing wasn't that he was able to get such monster air, but how consistently he did it on numerous times...

It's all about the pink kites... they simply jump higher... if it was about rider skills... he would have done better on some of those landings... so what he needs is a pink board... they land better

viet, I'm working on the pink board thing.

Oh! And your right, it's not the rider but the PINK Best kite that has the magic. :shock:

Kind of the point of my original post was that noel would have jumped just as high and as often on a pink C kite with a depower bridle. The magic depower is in the bridle....the hang time, easy loops, and low end is in the kite.

Most of the kites that day were bow/sle from SS, Naish, Cab, GK, etc. and a 9m pink waroo. So bridle was not a differentiating factor...

No one was coming close to the pink airness... clearly pink + balls = monster air...
