Not watched the transition vid yet as I'm at work, but can't wait to see it. I thought he was working on a kiteloop vid?

I enjoyed the jump transition as I am working on those. I have some bad free fall due to redirecting kite too early and falling out of the sky. You need to fly kite overhead first.
Second good advice which was helpful is to go in with moderate speed and carve really hard upwind in order to jump straight up or keep kite backward just long enough to kill horizontal speed.
I have also tried to jump transition with downloop but it didn't look as smooth as in the video. It seems like I initiate downloop too hard, it looks like Dimitri 's downloop is pretty slow and smooth. Probably needs more practice to get timing and speed if the loop right.

Thanks for the video. Keep them coming.

Key point - keep the kite overhead at 12.

Dimitri's videos are the only kite videos that I watch until the end.
