On March 31st, some of the PWA's finest strapped ShadowBoxes to their boards and hit Hookipa to find out once and for all who could jump the highest. Levi Siver (DaKine, MFC) stomped an enormous back loop measuring 52 feet 7 inches, and Boujmaa Guillol (Starboard, Severne, MFC) soared 62 feet over the famous reef break during a straight air.
The ShadowBox is a new GPS unit that attaches to your board so you can analyse your speed, distance covered, heights during jumps, and much, much more. Check out www.shadowboxlive.com for all the info.
Not only did the guys have the GPS units strapped to them, they also had GoPro cameras mounted to their booms, and cameras on the beach so that you guys at home could experience the adrenaline pumping action too. Check out the video by clicking HERE.
