this is what i do when its hott out and water is nice

the jump doesnt look very high but it is at least 50-55 feet, and yes the steps are at a slant making the jump alot harder



tell me what you think!

Actual height can be calculated within a few feet from the time of the jump to the splash.

I have not downloaded the video to do a frame by frame time check on the jump. Initial thoughts are a bit below 50 feet.

Handy online calculator;
http://www.calcresult.com/mech-eng/ball ... efall.html

At 50 feet the time would be;

Speed at impact:17.28 m/s
or 62.22 km/h
Time until impact: 1.76s

As best as I can tell pausing the youtube video, time to splat is about 2 seconds. The claim appears to be valid.

Next time you go bring a ball of yarn or a long piece of string and tie a weight to the bottom. Ive jumped at 50, 85, and just over 100, just dont seem like 50. Maybe its just the video, very cool though dude!!
