Flippenout athletes -- Sean Kennedy, Nathan
Gibeault and Andrew Muzzarelli -set a New Guinness World Record for the Highest Trampoline Bounce (Team). On July 13, 2012 on the boardwalk in

"kipped" Sean off of his belly to a new world
record height of 22 feet 0.52 inches above the
trampoline (over 26 feet above the ground).
Media coverage by NBC 40 out of Atlantic City,
expert witnesses including a licensed surveyor
to document the height, as well as spectators
