no Pain no Gain: How not to kiteloop, when low is too low.

Enjoy my last session stoke: worked on powered backroll kiteloop and had some pretty funny fail:
Landed a small double backroll kiteloop which is pretty sweet. Worked on some unhooking as well.

My buddy made a better edit from another angle:

That's another funny one as well:

The bail out you do at 1:56 in the first vid is fricken epic!
Your shadow rolling down the windows was hilarious!

Good on ya for posting that. I usually quickly delete that stuff so I can pretend like the crashes never happened.... 😒

If you look on google map long enough you can find many like these ;)

Didnt land in board and was deep enough. Only things that hurt is my hand slapping water surface, stung for a while.
I usually include the funniest wipeout that's why video is a bit too long. Im all for making crash reel at the end of the year but I would have too much content haha

It's a lagoon with coast guard station 1 mile upwind from launch.

I actually got stuck in wind shadow from cliff at beginning and had to run up to the lagoon because wind was so weak...
Wind was up and down, maybe 15 knots when I do those low power unhook stuff and 22 on those kiteloop, a couple of them maybe 25 knots when a gust came. It was actually nice to be able to practice everything from lower range of kite to mid range.

Actually, it's interesting because I can loop the GP with very light wind and land pretty softly, I got to try the cabrinha FX, it feels pretty similar loop wise but on landing when you sheet in for landing loop you don't feel any power and kite doesn't catch you as much, on GP it's almost instantaenous even if kite is still climbing back up as soon as you sheet in, it catches you.
Apparently it requires to time it a bit earlier. Took my 4 tries to land it somewhat softly. My buddy is much better as he learned those on a slow kite so he can land easily on FX but for me it was night and day in those conditions. More wind and more height would help for sure but still I found it way easier on GP.

I was going to rig 12m but a few days earlier wind cranked to 45 knots from 15 with a blue sky... so decided to go with 9m instead.

PS: Added a couple of pics for people with no youtube access.

Sorry Toby, didn't include much airstyle but I did practice my slide that day. Actually did my best slide ever that day, almost hit the gopro lol.

I am not really good at them since I often forget to practice those or slam my balls down on water then skip practice until I forget about pain ;)
