I am sure kiting keeps you going and fit.
Yes Toby. Kiting and daily exercises for flexibility and strength....At least to my ability. But the kiting is pleasurable, the exercises a necessity. Also the brain is going. I just sent email to get signed in on my PC!!!!!

Re: Downloop while boosting Big

Had kite completed down loop in this pic? Because if not the right bar end should still be held down - that's my limited experience. Also, taking kite back to about 11 (if going right) seems important - kite loops higher.

Don't yell at me!

In strong wind you have to make sure the kite is behind you when you initiate the downloop, otherwise there will be quite some pull. On my down loop from over 14m, the loop was started with the kite overhead & redirected hard.... the landing felt worse than it was - 4.6G The comments above on heli ...

Re: Landing a good jump help

Thank you jeromeL. Excellent descriptions. Will be trying ASAP. Also, saw your face book video. That first shot of you and the kite really shows your concept of looping kite in the transition - kite right of 12 as you're coming down, and you looping to left, with left hand (original front hand), an...
