Toby, how do you even think of taking out a 14 in 30knts... incredible.
What are the units for the height, meters or feet?

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.
