Nick Jacobsen Charges Straight Off Richard Branson’s Island

Nick Jacobsen is well known for his awesome kitesurfing stunts and his daring style. But his latest trick surpasses all expectations. He visited Richard Branson’s Necker Island with a clear goal: to kitesurf off the island, launching from the highest spot.

And Nick launched himself from 131 feet above sea level, from the roof of the Great House. He cleared more than 300 feet of land and traveled 500 feet to land upright in the water on his board, in front of the amazed audience, who cheered for him all the way.

The jump was filmed for what is set to be biggest kitesurfing film ever, Chapter One, directed by Bob van de Gronde, and was performed during a Mai Tai Global gathering.

Check out Nick’s amazing stunt in the clip below. Enjoy!
