200 foot jumps?

Think we'll ever see 200ft jumps? It seems like things just keep getting bigger...I remember 10 years ago 80 foot jumps were insane and last year at super park Loon built a 120ft booter from lip to knuckle and guys were over shooting it by 40 feet.

Had this discussion with the lead supervisor at Brecks Parks yesterday. He said it best we're seeing more people throwing doubles on 30 to 45 foot jumps with better style now that we won't need to have hundred foot death jumps anymore. I honestly have to believe that based on the number of pro's that ride Breck and spend their time riding Park Lane instead of Freeway (Dewsh Tour Course)

Wouldn't surprise me if we see it, but not anytime soon, a lot of videos seem to always have the one big jump in them. This ones claimed to be 120 feet to the knuckle and is back in 2007...

That's actually a really good point I never thought of that.

Here's a video of Kazuhiro Kokubo hitting 187ft booter. Looks alot bigger than the aforementioned video.

Almost 800 feet of jump! I wonder how far a snowboarder could go off one of these.

^What??? That is more like flying, not jumping. Wow! I feel that a snowboard would not be able to remain stable enough in the air and to take the impact.
