Hello. I would like to compete, but not sure if I can. I've gotten my tire up to 40in before, but have never really landed that. It's been a while so I'm back to around 35in or so.

If you'll let me compete, I'm in, I not sure if others would want me in though. It's your call.

oh yea, you guys should get all the pallets you need.
I've got 7european ones and drag them in and out of my garage with my car to the street and back. lol, its the only way I can do it without making anyone mad or pallets getting in the way of my family. took a few weeks to find that solution.
Or get whatever you need to compete. maybe you can find a good spot around town. I have used this place behind my grocery store. it had pallets and a even light for night jumping.
or maybe a ledge and you could add a pallet or two to it to increase height.
maybe your property has some concrete/asphault area to put pallets on?

i might have some tables i can do it on. My friend too some sketchy measurements with this really really sketchy ruler, and it was over 100cm. (i seriously dont know if thats the real height, since the ruler was in inches and cm, and it was like 3cm to an inche at one part.

Start the Competition

well I have got 100cm only once but I feel confident that I can go higher. thats why I made this thread to push myself and others.

new people may join at any time.

I think its time we start the competition and I think its time for all unicyclists to start jumping higher.

Competition Rules:
1. Only submit sidehops 100cm or larger.
2. Only 100% honest jumps only. So do the sidehops with the measuring tape already measuring the jump then grab your camera and show proof after the completed sidehop. show bottom and top of the tape.
3. Centimeters only.
4. Film the sidehop and and measuring the jump on the same clip.
5. no old information. only brand new stuff. The focus is on whats to come not what has been.

once a sidehop is submitted we are all expected to reply to it with another sidehop. If someone gets one centimeter higher than you... just jump one centimeter higher than them. If you cant jump higher, reply to it with a new personal record or just over 100cm.

You may call people out. But its understood that if someone is jumping higher, they are already calling you out.

GO!

GOOD JOB.

its ok for not measuring as you did fall and your pallets are sketchy.
I bet you could go higher with better pallets. you would be more secure in your jump and more trusting of the landing.

Ok everybody. that means your next. post a 100cm or post something higher than 104cm. Remember to film the sidehop and and measure the jump on the same clip. so keep the measuring tape on the pallets.

I will be posting ASAP for sure once my knee feels better. I just fell at the skatepark. not even on my unicycle. It was a skateboard.
