wow.. that seems amazing, if you compare with normal ski jumping, they always have the hill side to land which is in the right angle.. in this case he only has flat lake water... must be hard to stand =) nice job

#2 *water ski jumpers* (im danish dont know the english word for it but we will call it water ski jumpers here) they often break their angels *the part over the foot* (dont know the english word here either) saw one guy that will never walk on his foot again .. now he jumps again with gaffa tape around the foot to support as the foot can't take it

Notice how he cuts the angle so fast once he reaches the yellow object.
It must have something to do with him getting so much speed?
anyone know how he did this?

#4 and #6 He cut from far left to far right in order to build up centrifical force. In water-sports, you can go faster then the boat that is pulling you if you can sling-shot around it. It's like getting a big burst of speed. If he can hold on to the rope he can really he could get an easy 50% speed boost for the jump.
I do a lot of water sports, and with a longer rope, you get more speed. Trick is holding on when your arm feels like it's getting pulled out of its socket.
That was a sweeeet jump.
