Do not lie. Whatever you say I know that you secretly wish to jump from really high stuff with your kite. Last year Jesse Richman towed himself up to 790 feet and flew down. Now there is one guy that stepped the game up a little and jumped from a mountain that is 909 meters high, and landed at the seashore in Gököva, Turkey. Watch the video here.
In the “Jumping from 909 meters cliff with a kite” – video:
The crazy dude is Marek “Murphy” Zach, an Ozone rider from Czech Republic.
