Not sure how much a shadowbox weighs, but you could put at least two on the rider/board and then take the average of the 2 readings. It'd be interesting to see the differences between multiple shadowbox's for the same jump anyway.

what a toolbag!!! can't have enough fun jumping and pointing your toes you need two computers to tell you how cool you are.

did you notice that any of these pics that are worth a crap involve kite loops, where are yours Toby, I bet that looping that 14 in 30 knots would have been something

That is real big, probably biggest I have seen. Woudl rather see a jump like that than a hangtime jump.

It's way more interesting here when riders actually show their stunts rather than talk ego shit .


I did think one of the EH kite shots was the most insane kiteloop ever , but then i noticed it was a straight jump - still all good tho...

Crash&burn, what exactly is your beef with Toby? You are just at him on posts. Was he dick to you at some beach in the past or something?
