We look forward to videos of your 22 second jumps that show more style.

What about that guy who got lofted in Maui? It was caught on film as they were taping Top Hat on Kite Beach- he seemed to be up there for at least 20 plus seconds-

Isn't that the record?

This is the video that is refered too and I'm going to have to disagree that it should only be considered lofting.

Erik Eck is the dude that went up. If you listen to his interview he says "There were a pair of lines infront of me and I jumped up in the air over that, and I went up to about five feet and hung there for a second..."

15 seconds into th video Top Hat says "Whoo, look there's a guy up there." and that's the first time we see Erik and the Lastime we see him is when he disapears behind some trees and 50 seconds. That's 35 seconds in the air. But we still didn't see the take off or landing so really he could have been in the air 1 or 2 seconds longer. May be more. That's close to doubling Jesse Richman's time.

So true Erik didn't have a board on him, but he did initiate the jump. And he did say there was a gust that hit at the same time. Some one also said that Jesse Richman told them that he coul feel something weird in the air.

So do you need to have a board to qualify for hangtime? Erik probably had 25lbs on Jesse even with out a board. And if some one does a big jump but doesn't do a kite loop will that not count? or will that just be considered lofting?

Good for Jesse Richman, but personally I think that the record belongs to Erik Eck.


*** I spelt Jesse's last name wrong... sorry.

for it to be a kiteBOARDING record, yeah, you need a board and launch and land on the water. Maybe ecks jump is a record for beach jumping.

I believe the record that was claimed at least as far as this thread is concerned was "water to water"

here is the quote, maybe you missed it.

I can give you a long list of "jumps" that lasted 10 hours and took the rider over 100 miles. These were done on paragliders. But a paraglider is just a foil kite with a lot of lines. So where do you want to draw the line?

Jessie did an intentional jump from water to water (and landed it I believe). To me that qualifies as the record. I doubt that Eric would consider his mishap a jump.

it should be at the very least on purpose. I've had many jumps that were not on purpose as a beginner but I can't claim them.

water to water dude.

based off the screaming and yelling from the gallery, they were impressed. based off of the reaction of erik's jump, bystanders were horrified.

big...huge difference.

one was on purpose. erik's was by accident.

question to you...which would you prefer to pull off?

nice jump jesse and thanks stacey for posting the jump.
