Just saw this on Facebook but I don't know what to make of it really.

It is pretty amazing but from the video there is no way of knowing if it's a world record. The pov is quite disorienting it would be good to normal footage of it.

All in all still amazing, world record or not.

Looks like the odd Thermal lift jump people have been posting all year on FB... fun stuff that would freak you out if not expecting it
Dont forget - for a world record, you need an officially sanctioned recording device everything else is just a toy meter..

I thought the " unhooked wake style is the pinnacle of everything" attitude died off 5 or so years ago. Does anyone even care anymore??

I like what the guys are working on now... Unhooked with height and fluidity of moves rather than trying to fit in multiple moves making them look like spastic monkeys infected with rabbies.

It's still the most technical and hardest of the kiting styles, on your body as well. Anyone who denies that have never seriously tried it.

You can have all the balls and lack of self preservation in the world. And be a awesome bigwave surfer or king of air.

But you need hours apon hours apon hours to do the flippy dippy boogaloo that you cant even tell what they just done im talking thousands not hundreds.

Theres like old pro skaters who got depressed and theyre meds made them massive and they can still run decent lines around the park and flatland stuff like mullens.... But im yet to see a obese dude throw down some spinflipparino 7s on a kite

Im going to be that fat man
Like an hollywood actor ill not only get fat but also old to play this part. Its my destiny. Youll all be applauding me for the courage it took to sustain entirely off crispy creams for a decade to be the first manatee in space.

I cant believe i completely forgot about the acid in the storage shed thank god it was in alfoil what sort of drug dies from sunlight should be printing nosferatu on these bad boys not sunflowers and clouds
