f***, what a stunt!!!

Whether he landed it?
Rather: Did he survive?

body position looks legit...prob didn't do a back role with it and thats why his position may look skewed but id have to say the loop is fully legit

I guess its due to short lines. That kite is down through the power zone and back up at 12 in no time. I'd love to see the next picture. He'd be facing the water like a diver.

If anyone could pull that off it would be Martin. I've seen him do similar ones at Waddell years ago. Remember he was 3x world champion, brought the handlepass to kiting and pushed the limit of waveriding before anyone. Check the video clip in the download section of his website at varikites.com
