If you are into kite surfing chances are you know who Nick Jacobsen is. If you don’t, however, he is a Danish pro, winner of 2017 Red Bull Kind of the Air. He is also known for performing many crazy stunts in kite surfing. I once read, that the first thing he does when coming to a new spot, is look for the highest place around he can jump off using his kite.
This time the place of choice was a helipad of the famous Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai, which is at 210m (689 ft.) above the ground. By performing this stunt, Nick beat the world record in the highest kiteboarding jump, which previously belonged to…. Nick Jacobsen :)
