Hello everyone,

Before you watch this movie, be sure to read that it was created this way: both me (Country: Czech Republic blackelf Moviemaker) and
Country: Portugal zythH^ Moviemaker do real life climb and obviously we're aware of one of the best climbers in the world,
Alex Honnold. He is a man who climbs above 500 meters high walls in real life without any rope or safety equipment and there is a short documentary that we recommend you to watch (El Sendero Luminoso) as we tried to create the same feelings but through our vision as Kreedz climbers.
The feeling of joy and freedom Alex has in his historical climbs can be seen as the feelings we have when achieving our goals in KZ, hour after hour of trying our best to improve one single jump and every little detail being important to beat such achievement.

Without further ado, we hope you enjoy this small movie in honor to every climber from the past, present and future. The last 15 years of history are for sure part of our lives and we shall never forget the climbs we have made.

News: New LJ Techniques: Poll

Xtreme-Jumps XJ

Hello community,

We are excited to finally provide you with some news regarding the LJ Records section. For the longest time,
we have had only 5 official LJ techniques. In the past that made sense and these five techniques did their job to keep the competitive integrity of high level longjumping. However, today's circumstances are no longer the same,
so a change for the better was required to keep the modern content of the KZ world fresh and exciting.

For these reasons, we have decided that it is time to incorporate more LJ techniques within the official LJ Records section. Nevertheless, we didn't want such an important decision to be a one-sided affair, hence we would like your help to determine which new techniques you would like to see being added.

After deliberate examination of the available and known techniques, we came up with 9 new possible entries for the LJ Records section. Moreover, out of these nine techniques, we will have to choose, as a community,
up to 5 techniques that are going to be eventually declared as the standard ones.

Bear in mind that this post's sole purpose is to decide which new techniques we want to officialize, once that's been determined, further details will be revealed in a new post related to the map, the method of performance, and the tops section.

The voting process allows you to choose a minimum and maximum of 5 techniques. If we notice a considerable amount of votes leaning towards only three or four techniques, the rest could be discarded and we will proceed only with the most popular ones. The reasoning behind this is that if the new techniques we want to add are less than three, the amount of work that will have to be put to integrate just two techniques would be disproportional. And, contrariwise, the same thing applies to adding more than five techniques as it would also mean an imbalanced and strenuous effort.
You need a Google account/email in order to participate in this poll.

In the end we would like to hear your opinion as well, so the aforementioned could be subject to change.
With this being said, take a good look at the proposed techniques down below. We made a brief introduction to most of them so make sure to vote for the ones you truly want to see a world record on.

Choose wisely!

Note: You can find the link to the poll at the end of this newspost. Click on "Read the rest..." below!

News: XJ Premiere: Anomalous Kreedz by Nubz

Good evening XJ,


Today is the day I have been waiting for a long time. A day that I thought might never even come. The day when I get to release my long lasted project called Anomalous Kreedz that I started editing it back in 2018. At first it was going to include just two parts with around 20 demos, but as I found more and more interesting trickjumps/combos and kept landing these... Well, the project just grew and grew. I had moments when I didn't know what to do next because the original idea had to be changed after doubling the demo count. After countless hours of editing it was finally coming together with my vision.


In the edit itself I tried to find a balance with impressive effects/transitions and still maintain a clear view on the trickjumps which always plays a big role of course. The rhythm of the movie is variable and takes you in it for 8 minutes. Presenting four very different parts but still trying to keep it together with some similarities.


The demos I recorded are from between 2017 and 2019. Those were the years that I practiced kreedz truly and started getting better. Some demos are obviously easier, but I wanted to present the journey as I had already edited those 2017-2018 demos. Last year I landed best trickjumps from this movie. de_chateau's trickjump is probably the hardest!


I really appreciate the few people constantly asking me about the movie. You guys truly motivated me to finish it and today I am able to present it to you all at XJ. I will for sure not quit editing kreedz totally, but most likely this will be my last kreedz movie.


I hope you all enjoy it! -Nubz

News: ROTM #1 - patchouli on kz_synergy_x

Xtreme-Jumps Movies

Good evening XJ,

As you might already notice from the title, we are starting a new series called Run Of The Month (ROTM).
Run Of The Week series will be forgotten for now, atleast in the form as it used to be.
The reason behind this is that we (the staff) could not provide these as frequent as they should have been and therefore we decided to start this new series. To be honest, nothing else changes than the title and the expectations of the community as we couldn't provide ROTW series weekly with now more often WR releases. Apologies for that.

But this is a new page for a new series and I must say, we are proud to present the first edition of ROTM.
Some crazy records we have seen lately, but one standed out clearly from the others. Country: China patchouli CS 1.6 Recordholder dropped a few demos after quite a long time. Seeing a 03:20.90 time on kz_synergy_x makes me wanna call it Run Of The Year! Rumours say that patchouli even claims it could be humanly improved by another 10 seconds...
That sounds crazy but time will tell I guess.


Now lets review the clip itself a little bit! What an interesting comeback from the golden years of moviemaking.
Country: France WqkO Moviemaker who is well known as the creator of the Failicious series decided to bless us with his work after such a long time. He used an outstanding soundtrack on this one that creates remarkable atmosphere for this specific run. I must say that the soundtrack is one of the best I have heard in a while... Country: France WqkO Moviemaker highlighted it with very deep colorful kind of darkish color set and as you watch that in 4K 60fps stream, you surely won't miss the atmosphere! Hope to see more of you in the future ;)


Make sure your internet runs fast, set the video on 4K 60fps and get into this progressive atmosphere of synergy!

Featuring: Country: China patchouli CS 1.6 Recordholder
Map: kz_synergy_x
Time: 03:20.90 (-00:22.82)
Previous holder: Country: China patchouli CS 1.6 Recordholder
Moviemaker: Country: France WqkO Moviemaker

Xtreme-Jumps Maps

Hello kreedzers,

We have 6 new maps for you. The first 3 maps are classic easy to average combo maps, which are expected to get smashed soon. Then it gets tough - kz_trespass has some challenging and long climb parts, where one fail means you're going to repeat the room. The spm_hb_paslalala map is full of tricky and techy jumps, but luckily isn't as punishing to pro run. And the last one is kzra_wired - beautifully insane bhop map that will test your scrollwheel. Good luck!
