Another Norwegian, Tom Hilde, now has the world record with dragon skis. Dragon skis are short, and is harder to master. Current world record: 91 meters.


New world record

All jumps were made with the dragon skis. 190cm long jumping ski based on a telemark ski. Really funny, first time ever jumping in a k-90 with those skies, and i can proudly announce that i now have the world record.
