Oh yes, that's Jessie Richman. It's claimed that his 22 second jump is the longest controlled jump on record. I'm a little too old - and maybe a little too heavy - for the kite jumping end of our sport. Looks neat though.

Cheers,
Tom

P.S. If you choke a Smurf, what color would it turn?

Funny that Kitesurfers can claim so many things, they really should remember that kiting has been around for 100's of years, not just the last 10 or so...

Here's a video of Chasta just having fun, not comps, no judges, no spectators:
Chasta
You need to see this guy when he gets serious. :shock:

I have seen him in the air well over 40-45 seconds and traveling a couple hundred yards at a time, bout midway through the video you can see him going for what seems about a quarter mile in the air. It's over water...although the frozen powdery kind. lol :up:

He has a ton of videos on Youtube and it is a pleasure watching him ride.
Happy Winds!

Kent,

Pleasure? I had to set on the floor to finish watching the video. Wow, combining the dangers of snowboarding with the dangers of power kiting! Definitely an extremely talented individual. I found this video of him on water ... once again, very impressive. Makes me glad I'm not his insurance agent.

Thanks for sharing,
