It was a simple idea - how high can you go? Ok, that was too easy, so it turned into "How high can you go and land a backloop?" With all of the riders equipped with cameras from us at EpicSessions.tv and Shadowboxes, and cameras on the beach, we'd record the contest like no other in windsurfing history and award the winners based on REAL height data from the Shadowboxes.
Mother nature was pleased with the concept as she delivered some of the most insane winds and waves to combine into an epic jumping ground for the event.
Levi went 52.7 feet with the winning backloop and Boujmaa boosted to 62.3 feet for the highest overall jump. SWEEET!
Expect to see more events like this soon from the best windsurfing spots in the world!
Special thanks to Casey and Jake for pulling this off while I was stuck in Wisconsin. You guys rock!
