The record sat at 2.825 metres, set at the planetFear Dyno comp, at last year's Cliffhanger festival. Skyler managed to increase that today by 2.5cm - seemingly with ease- to 2.82 metres at the Pod Sacs Dyno Comp.

However Skyler did confess that whilst completing the dyno, he did feel something 'pop' in his back and so it remains to be seen as to whether he can once again crush the record tomorrow.
