Pushing the limits of the sports is not an easy task, but there are few that are brave enough to push highest kiteboarding jump record higher and higher every year.

In the adrenaline-fueled realm of kiteboarding, where riders harness the power of the wind to propel themselves to astonishing heights, records are made to be broken. The latest leap into the record books comes from none other than Joshua Emanuel, soaring to an unprecedented 36.2m, surpassing the previous champions James Overbeek at 36.1m and Hugo Wigglesworth at 36.0m.

Joshua Emanuel – The New King of the Skies 

Emanuel’s gravity-defying 36.2m jump took place under the watchful eyes of the kiteboarding community in northern Denmark, marking a historic moment in the sport. The South African athlete showcased unparalleled skill, determination, and a deep connection with the wind, pushing the boundaries of what was thought possible in kiteboarding.

Angely Buillot – Reigning Queen of the Skies

While Joshua Emanuel dominates the men’s category, the women’s title belongs to the phenomenal Angely Buillot. With a jaw-dropping jump height of 32.6 meters, she not only clinched victory but also shattered her own previous record of 25.1 meters. Buillot’s prowess in the air showcases the increasing prominence of female athletes in kiteboarding.

As kiteboarding continues to evolve, driven by the pursuit of new challenges and records, the sky is the limit for these daring athletes. The records set by Joshua Emanuel and Angely Buillot not only secure their places in history but inspire the next generation of kiteboarders to dream big and reach new heights in the boundless expanse of the open sky.

Did you know that a 10-11 story residential building is approximately 36m? Just food for thought.....
