That is impressive hops, for sure.

Not to split hairs, but I would measure an effective vertical by what you are able to reach--overhead, not by how tight you can tuck your heels. (This is based on the assumption that the purpose of a vertical is to do awesome slam dunks, like over dudes heads and what-not. By no means the only reason to develop a vertical--it's just the only thing I ever did with it.)
There's a level of facility that everyone needs to accomplish, and from there
it's a matter of deciding for yourself how important ultra-facility is to your
expression. ... I found, like Joseph Campbell said, if you just follow whatever
gives you a little joy or excitement or awe, then you're on the right track.
