Re: The amazing 2004 GlobeRider Lift 12m!
- Hi there Hung, was the guy jumping as high as the guy on this video?
I think its about 20 meters and almost 7 seconds, not sure though.
He is using a 2004 model kite from a new Aussie kite company, the
video is of 5 massive jumps in a row in 24 knots.
Its he biggest jump I have seen so far on the net.

snow/ice - therefore more reserved - and only in around 15 knots);
however. the jumps generated by the GlodeRider Lift seemed to be more
impressive than the other kites.
This is the type of kite that give a very comfortable feeling when
jumping on snow/ice as it is stable yet very responsive (this is
somewhat contradictory but that is how it feels...) allowing you to
depend on it when landing.
