Sorry to say...the kite does not stay at 45 degrees...she gets kite assistance to get airborne :wink:

yes at first 45...then 55...then 65...then 75 and finally 80 degrees :bye:

Still well done.... but not nearly as graceful and beautiful to look at... compared to a surfboard back

Only yanking your chain, no harm meant :thumb:

Backroll/loop etc kiting is full of different names for different things. Twists, spins....all pretty much the same thing.................rotation :thumb:

Just seems a trend on here at the moment to write incredibly long winded technical replies to the most simplest questions, is there no wind out there at the moment :?: :-? :?: :-? :lol: :lol: :lol:

I have never heard a "backroll" being called a "backloop" before. Is this a regional thing?

Riders roll, kites loop.


I've only heard british call it a back loop - others seem to go with back roll.

so here's an international dictionary

backloop: british guy doing a backroll
back kite loop: back roll with a kite loop (see also back roll kite loop)
back loop loop: british guy doing a backroll with a kite loop

Very nice instructional video.
Too bad they don't know the correct terminology. They would have had nothing but compliments here.

OIC, so what does a Brit call a backloop (i.e. backhand kiteloop) without a backroll?

A kiteloop without any rotation/backroll is surely just a kiteloop????

Backloop/Backroll same thing
Backloop kiteloop = hooked in F16

Whether inverted or not its still a back rotation/roll/loop/spin

Backloop = back spin. Ie a flat spin underneath kite (no invert)
Backroll = Semi inverted spin like cartwheel - use pop not kite
Inverted Backroll - look up mexican roll in wakeboarding

It's good to define between them as they look/feel very different.

My favorite is doing a railey Backroll - don't think it has a name.

And yes, I'm British..
