thanks for your info Peter, you are right. Wind and speed makes difference. I remembers one of the best jumps I had was on my 6m RPM. I thought that bigger size make me jump higher but you made a point. Wind and speed, I guessing that with smaller kites I can swing them faster to 12 which will give me more momentum to go higher.
From your answers I saw that I need to improve 3 things:
1- always keep tension especially when kite getting 12 (I usually depower little bit and as I jump I pull it, but now I know that is not good)
2 - edging, what exactly you mean with redirecting speed?
3- load and pop - yeah I just need to work on this one, I can’t pop w/o sending a kite. So this I think will be the hardest
thanks Peter for all insides I will try this.
CRASH & BURN
Great inside, I never thought to look for flat water between chops. I like this
“Doing that timed correctly with the sending of the kite results in a straight up pull that will stretch your ribs out”
Thanks man, I also notice that I have hard time to hold the edge in chop. Usually what happen to me 2-4 times in sesh I get speed and then as I sending a kite I just crash before I get lift. Reason I going so fast I can hold the edge
LOL I play with this so I can and still trying to find best balance .
Plummet, I think I do this
“Letting the bar out while your loading and starting to send helps for me.
*then pull the bar in.” but I either doing it wrong or I doing it wrong. I noticed that if I let bar going out little bit and then pull I am not going as high as if I hold a tension in lines. I am bummed about this because I thinking that is bad habitt and I need to get read of it. I am just so used to it. Maybe you have better technique and it gives you actually higher jump. Any idea what I doing incorrect?
I agree with you that for boosting high I need jumping kite. But I know if I put some names here it will turn into kite brand discussion
, we can do that later after we put together HUGE AIR jumping manual
guys thanks so much for your inputs. I don’t have to tell you how much rush and excitement I get from big air jumping. And hopefully with your advices and some practice me and other guys who like to go high we may be able to do it in shorter period of time.
