BIGGEST AIR!?!?

Postby mz16 » Sun Jan 27, 2008 11:09 pm

I was arguing with a friend of mine about exactly how high Ali B's jump was in that "Big Saturday" clip, and began to wonder and search on youtube, what is the biggest jump caught on video? many claim that their jump is highest but I would love to see it. I think that video where the guy gets lofted is probably the biggest, but that wasnt a jump, but an accident I think. Anyone willing to post what they thing is the bigget air? so far I think it is this one...

That was like 8-9 secs?

I think the biggest air i've seen on vid is this. 11 secs. On a switchblade1 7m if I remember well.

I think the title says biggest. To me thats the biggest air i've seen on vid, that means height, length and distance.

well sorry for the naming issue, you are right it does say biggest, but I meant highest, I know there are guys who can loop ten feet of the water for days, and thats damn impressive, but I was looking for highest

Just to be a pain in the backside. I have seen some glides over 200 feet high.

well yeah, when I was snowboarding in chamonix, there were paragliders over the top of Mont Blanc, but I want to see a kiteboarder on water just mega boost, and on video. I think jumping really high is often more fun than technical stuff (I especially think so when I am having an off day :) , but I just want to see someone go absolutely f'ing huge. I cant be the only one who likes it???

Sometimes when my unhooked technical stuff isnt working and its a bad day and I'm really lit I love just boosting huge on my 9m fuel and looping the fuck out of it at like 40feet+ up
