Nick teamed up with Mercedes-Benz Middle East and Dubai for this new record breaking stunt. The Burj Al Arab has a helipad 210 m (689 ft) above ground which Nick jumped off.
We think this is what he was talking about in his recent Instagram post below:

My one and only dream in kiteboarding just came true today. 4.5 years ago I had an idea, and now it's been executed. A lot of denials before the permission. Full video will be online in around 2 weeks. Time to sleep a little now. Thanks to everyone who's been involved in my mad dream; @xdubai @virgin @richardbranson @morgancarlson @kevinlangeree @vestas @kezziabvi @cabrinhakites @alsbirk @moni_ltd @maitaiglobal @lumecube @npsurf @anttipennanen @miriamkidde @hviiid @burjalarab @wookiteboarding @dirtyhabitstv @richardghowes
