Dale Cook: massive jump followed by an incredible bailout

Dale Cook has pulled a massive windsurfing jump, followed by an incredible bailout at the Hatchery, on the Columbia River Gorge.

The conditions were epic. With wind gusting at 45 miles per hour (72.4 kilometers per hour) and the river flowing at 342,000 cubic feet per second, all windsurfers were having fun.

The swell allowed for wave sailing tricks, but Dale Cook was more into windsurfing jumps. And it happened when it had to happen. Cook found a ramp and got airborne.

Dale's breathtaking 4.5 second jump got everyone ecstatic. As he prepares the landing on choppy water, he opts to bailout in spectacular fashion.

"The Hatch" is located about four miles to the west of Hood River, in Oregon. Depending on the power of the stream, windsurfers can get up to eight-foot unbreakable waves.

Whether you think of a kite as a wing or a sail, you want it to be lightweight, resistant, waterproof, but also stiff and flexible at the same time, so that they could respond to all flight requests.
