It will be a hole lot of screen dumps.😁
The easiest way to try to measure 20m jumps without a device is by boosting next to a friend who has his kite straight up.
If you can see the upper graphics on the kite your high (as a kite😋).
The condition where really crazy. The wind went from 23kn to about 40knots or more in gusts, guessing. The biggest jumps were when I got hit by freak gust in mid air. In those kind of jumps you go almost straight up. It's not your every day jump.
Imagine you're self on a 8m high ar kite when 40kn gusts hits you mid air. The lift was quite violent and scary at some of the jumps.
If I hadn't my Woo on the board I wouldn't jumped in those gusts. My biggest regret was not to bring my camera😭.
I didn't expect those kind of conditions. The other guys were on 9 and 10m. For the record I've been kite for about 10 years and consider myself a very experienced kiter.
Would nice to get someone to stand under you and point a laser distance meter to see the hight and compare it with the Woo.

when you truly jump alot.....i mean thousands upon thousands........you can really appreciate all the different types of wind, and there are many.......its not unusual to go jump only 6m and then 16m plus in the same session....if its gusty or up and down wind......you can not predict a gusty wind, but you do need the balls and experience to jump it.
....the beauty about woo is it shows a history of your jumping, a one off is a one off, but if your doing things day in and day out.......then thats wat you do. Bladesurfer has the history!

Here are all my jumps from that day.
Do your thing 😁.
Some are kiteloops but most are boosting. I usually try to put the board over my head but didn't dear to do it in the strongest gust due to rotation issues.

Statistical analysis of OPs session:
- avg: 10.48
- stddev: 3.61
- confidence 95%: 0.64

I did not look time-wise how often you jumped time-wise related to jump height (if there is a big cap between prev and next jump related to 19m stated jump). But below picture shows 3 spikes relative other other data around. Jumps #93-#97 are more consistent on surrounding jumps. But naturally you can state that there were 10s gust of 50m/s and jump.

Something looks odd?
Am I reading this right, you did 124 jumps in a 94 minute session?
You did a jump about every 45 seconds for 124 times. With an average of 10.48m/jump

Do you have bionic knees?

That looks fine to me but really impressive average of 10m jump! Being that gusty must have been tough on core muscle!
I can do loop session of 2/3 hours with hundreds of loop and boost but no where near 10m average ;(
When I feel my core getting weak I stop, no problem on legs or knees though. Legs get tired only if choppy or being overpowered, and knee are fine unless wind is gusty and you get dropped with no power on the heliloop on lull.
