@Toby:
Did you take off on a wave?
Does not look like you were coming down at all from that Shadowbox graphic :wink:

no, flat water.

The graphic is zoomed in too much, so you cannot see the highest point of the jump, it shows only the curve going up.

But I also measured the jump with the tools of the box, and it is 70m far and hangtime 6+ secs.

Of course, it is in ft, not meters!

14 was my smallest kite I had with me...and I wanted to test the upper end.
