Hi
Don't take it personal, but...lotsa stoked newbies in the this awesome sport that try a wakeboard call it wakestyle, but that's different stuff. If you try jumping with your board with that arX17.5 well, the way you set up for a jump is way different that poppin of a wake of poppin out with a 2line kite
'da fing is'(thanks morris) that with a twoline kite you have slightly different pull and the 2lines have quite a different pop because there's tension on 2 i.s.o. 4lines. The loadup has more of a 'rubberband' feel to it, in comparisem to what you try riding your 17.5 with a loop.
You might try a smaller kite while unhooking just before you load up, this makes it easier too.
Lotsa respect for Dwight's reply!!

keep up that ballsout atittude!
