Looks higher than that. Maybe 15 meters. Whatever it is, that is some height...

yes but i saw the italian champ yesterday surfing in Genova nuovo lido and he was pulling 15m with inverted 740 removing the wavetray first and then putting it back on his feet before hitting the water planing. Now thats talent. give it up for Roberto. a real nice guy too. we spoke for a while and he is real cool. Hey Mr Jo. got some surf yesterday finally!!

I'm not sure whether this has been on here, but this is something about a guy getting caught in a thermal. Looks pretty scary :/

Yeah but he currently holds the record for highest jump and hangtime.
Apparently there are people doing 50m jumps kitesnowboarding and getting away with it. Don't fancy the landing much myself.

Aparently? Aparently, when I eat a lot of beans, and or cabbage, and then go out kiting, it has been remarked that my jumps "apparently" seem to be, to the casual bystander, MUCH BIGGER, than my standard 25 meter airs. Of course the brown streak frequently left behind, has been known to upset the local fishermen, and general beach goers. :grin:
