epic jump, happens once every hundred years :P

The wind came/gusted weirldy over the dunes/jury tower and it was more often used to make insane high jumps just in front of the beach/jury tower.

But this jump..... whow :thumb:

I saw it form the beach: it was really amazing.

The conditions were gusty, side off shore, I think it is very difficult to explain in knots. When the riders reached the beach mainly they were not able to show jumps short at the beach, because of less wind. A few meters outside on the water is was OK. I think we had between 4 - 6 bft, the first heats had only lower 4, the final heat with Kai Solbach and Jaime Herraiz had nearly about 6 bft. I guess

It was not only a vertical gust but even a small tornado or whirlwind what took him up.

That would explain the two kiteloops - or helicopter moves however - that Adam did: normally doing a kite loop the kite moves through the power zone. In this case the kite stayed up in the zenith.

I talked to Adam later on: he said he was just tryin to have a long hang time and after few seconds he thought "oh shit, you gotta land some time".

Within the price giving ceremony he received a bull horn from the PKRA for the inofficial hang time world record.

Great jump, Adam ! Thank you and the other riders for the nice time on the cup here in Germany ! Nice to see you again here next year !

Amazing footage-you can see where he means to come down from the jump and seems to get lofted and the hang time increases. Bloody great-the future is now!

OH MY GOD!!! That is incredible! I think it will take a while to break that record!!!
Interesting Adam was on the AeroII and not an X3.
Looking at Toby's pic he needs a good haircut too!
Thanks Rod, great stuff! :thumb:

becuase the gust was gone, then it goes down...you will experience it in every gusty conditions.
