great jump!

guys, watch the video...the liftoff is below the water line most of you used to measure the height.

You can't use the liftoff point from the video due to the nature of perspective as he is jumping away from the camera. If he was jumping sideways from the camera then it would work.

Nice Jump Party, I see on your close up picture you have a PIQ on your board. Did you have it on this this jump too? I would be interested to see hear the hight comparison. (I recently just gone and am very happy with the screen and waterproof cover)

Last jump is 16.1 or 18.1 ?

Still quiet a difference to 20.9 ...

Rest is pretty similar...but seeing it I would prefer using a Woo 😁😁😁

16,1 on the Last on PIQ.
By looking on the video and picture, and the feeling in the jump i will think Woo is closes to the real number on that jump. But i am not the judge of that, i kust got the number, Many there post there PIQ and WOO don't have any proff :-))

I say use both :-) and if you are commited to the game have more then one of each on. :-)

I did not calculate statistics like I did for thread OP's jumps a while ago but it looks that among 10-15 woo-meter jumps you suddenly get a single 21 woo-m jump. It is suspious statistically.

Also approach speed to jump does not seem to be high for energy conservation -theory as it would require 73km/h / 40 knots speed. But kite creates energy..

What is upwind from jump site creating also the flat water pool? Ridge causing updraft? How high?

Pier is about 2 meter heigh.
We only got the last jump on video and it was much higher then my other jumps. before the 20.9 jump i had one at 15.6 but that i had jump before.

Suspicious statistically?
Where do you live?
in most places 35kts days are.. 20 gusting to 40 :-)
To me it seems that the wind picked up silly, the guy did a boost got lofted and decided to call it the end of the set (which was smart)!

AND, he has a video as proof!
