    Note that Spitfire also seems be using the hang technique rather than a hitch-kick, which would take some coordination with 4 legs

      I'm sure Spitfire could also outrun Usain Bolt in a 100m dash as well.

          You might ask his coach or his agent. 😉

            That "31 feet" looks exaggerated, viewing the video.

                And the landing 'pit' is lower than the 'board'. But I did like his 'gather' at takeoff.

                  Luckily he kept his tail in the "up" position, otherwise the jump would have measured 30 feet.

                    A quadriped is a more streamlined shape in the air than us bipeds!

                      a 28-foot jump, since the plane is pretty high and it is the closest point, plus you have to rotate forward in a real jump which would have lost the do even a 27 foot jump in to sand.

                        In dog jumping they measure the farthest point where the dog breaks the water, not the nearest point.

                          You guys keep trying to downplay this record. This is man's best friend. This is un-American. Isn't this an indictment of our American way of life? I don't know about you but I won't stand by and listen to everyone badmouthing man's best friend and the United States of America.

                            What is the human record for jumping into water?

                              Are record breakers subject to doping control?
