That is a pretty big jump, definitely quite a bit over 10m. Were you hit by a gust after take off?

Nah, fdvj's jump is no more than 25 feet. Funny thing about wide angle lenses and slowed down video footage, they make even good jumps looks truly mega.

funny how people are so quick to call BS. to FV and anyone else that posted a pic. Thanks. I liked the vid, and you got some pretty serious height and hang time. Now and again I get a really good one, but seems I'm always just a hair off on the timing for the truly big ones.
Have fun...stay up there

Last week in on a 7m 2014 Airush Varial-X in about 35 knots. Wind bang on-shore so I coming towards camera and I reckon on the decent at this point (no take off trail). :wink:

Personally I have gone a good bit higher but there is never anyone with a camera when you really want them :lol:

Getting some mileage out of this shot JB...lol

Love the contrast and editing work on the colours. Wish I had one of those taken during the edge days.... :(

You just jealous that you don't have one like it :P

Although it should be eaiser for you guys as when we get really windy days (big jumping weather) it is usually pissing down and freezing - not many snappers are out in that type of weather :o
