Many kitesurfers get their kicsk out of jumping as high or as far as possible. To be able to do this, you will learn all kinds of techniques, such as mega looping. Our very own Dutch professional rider Ruben Lenten is known for his skills in mega looping and has therefore reached heights of 19 meters. Yourie Zoon, also a Dutch pro kiteboarder, jumped 35 meters over an island…

The Woo

Nowadays there is a gadget, the Woo, that can measure exactly how high you jump. If you are kitesurfing on Bonaire, you can try the Woo at Kiteboarding Bonaire. It is very simple: you put it in your pocket, you make your mega jump and then you read how high and how long your jump was. Do you also want to learn to jump high, learn kitesurfing, try the Woo once or just come and have a beer, join the fun at Kiteboarding Bonaire.

Ride hard and fly high.
