"Beware! The de-power is deceptive. It gives you a false sense of security. When you power up the pull is extremely strong!!! This is what we all love, but it must be respected, and treated with care."

Very true! Be carefull when pulling that bar! I also felt that power explosion.

It's a Real Media File.

Go to http://www.real.com and get the free Player...

It's hard to find the free version theses days:

I was told the wind was really gusty that day, you can see as he is coming down from the first jump that a gust hits him and lifts him up again,

Who is the rider in the jojo vid?
Marvelous piece of airtime. I am convinced that it will happen to me one day as well, just got to keep trying...

Is there any confirmation on the 13.2 seconds air time jump?

Who was the rider?

What kite was it?

Where did it occur?

When did it happen?

Did anybody actually see it?

Best regards,

Marc
