I assume the 94 mins includes getting in and out of the water, depends when he presses his button I suppose.
Were jumps on both tacks?
Do you maintain your position or end up 2 miles down wind.

I've never seen this frequency of high jumps anywhere I've visited.
would be a sight to behold!

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.

For me the fastest is in a slick, lagoon type with offshore wind.
going one way
boost
land downwind
transition right away
upwind one way only

then you repeat, no need to tack multiple time.

The rotation is really quick. well depends how far downwind you end up. which 15m jump is going to send you quite far :o
personally I don t boost 18m high lol with my wind but even on big kiteloop ending 60/90m downwind the rotation is really quick even with 4,5 people at same spot. with that strong wind and flat water you are cranking upwind pretty fast.

not sure how long the rotation is maybe 1min.

Here that's at the Real kiteboarding slick:

Impressive analysis! 😁
With that much wind I find it easy to jump +10m with the Edge 8m. To jump +15m you got to go really hard and time the jump perfect. Or if you are lucky and get hit by a strong gust.
I'm one of the few experienced kiter how uses a seat harness.
This takes alot of load of my back when I'm full powered and enables me to do kite longer in hard conditions.
Here is my home spot. Usually flat water depending on low or high tide.
Here is a small klipp from another session on the same spot. Not more then 11m high I would guess.
