Think your hang-time is good? Think again!

Cabrinha rider Jesse Richman recently launched a 22-second water to water jump at the Crissy Field Big Air Wind Jam. Those that witnessed the feat say that Jesse’s abnormal jump looked more akin to paragliding than kiteboarding. The weird, swirly conditions may have contributed to his abnormal hangtime. Jesse reportedly completed seven kiteloops while in the air.

Full documentation of the entire jump is pending, but in the meantime, check out these clips:
