Core guy, Rick Jensen, Bertrand Fleury, Franz Orly, Jesse Richman, Eric Reinstra, Garfield King and a bunch more. Watched a lot of these guys in person and that's the most impressive part. The pictures don't do this move justice. The guys that push it are easy to see and stand out from everyone else.

sick pics! i only ever kitelooped fuels and have hurt myself many times real bad (ankles) with 11 and 7m fuel - nearly always been due to gust at wrong timeyears ago. can anyone give me an ease of looping kite scale as i want to do more but must retire from the fuel ones cos there is no way i want to be out from kiting that long again. i got a dilemma - i don't like bridles or pullies, i can only just deal with the tech of kiting and these things send me towards other boards sports instead. seen some good vegas loops and small torch loops - small torches i have been on though feel liek a weak pull maybe i just need to get used to it...

i recently went from torch to vegas and im more confident now with my kiteloops. The vegas loops in a closer arc so it finishes the loop sooner and gets to zenith sooner, but has a nice pull downwind. If you want to do it more hardcore just loop it with your bar far from the chicken loop and it will do a bigger arc. Coming from torch, the torch always did a bigger arc (fuel type of i think), so it was more hardcore, vegas gave me confidence to try bigger and bigger kiteloops, not that they are lenten type of, but getting much better now. Im not affliated with any brand. I also tried a fuel 2009 1 week ago, and i did my biggest unhooked kiteloop ever, 3-4 metres high, with around 23 knots and 9m fuel, while in vegas i can do accidentally 1 loop and a half if im not fast getting my front hand to the bar again, the fuel did a slow nice arc, i was shocked, but i can also see the potential for hurting yourself, that fuel loop is radical, i dont think my knees would like it in a long term and im too old, but of the 3 i think it loops the best for sure, did a couple of hooked-in loops and i loved them too

@mante very good kiteloops, many guys get a nice downwind pull but dont land in a controlled way. Yours show nice technique for kitelooping, i do get a controlled landing every now and then but not all the time
