Haven't seen an eddie video since they were calling him eddie the eagle and he was flying foils.

nice air eddie. clearly you know what you're doing. For everyone else, don't try this at home unless you are a pro.

I hope Eddie has some kind of special testicle support....
Mother nature did not design the scrotum for this kind of thing...
At those Gs they will get stretched down to his knees...
And no one wants to see those big nasty things hanging out of his pants.,,
If he jumps like that they have to be big and nasty...

Nice riding. Most race kites work killer for jumps...and unreal hangtime. Racing and high jumps with hangtime really has some of the same requirements....
