I don't get what he is trying to achieve... this was 3+ years ago.

Great, but why is he still trying now? was this the only one?

Actualy it was kiteloop-downloop
S-Loop as it was said by Lenten is a kiteloop with downloop in the lowest point of a first one.

Tony, you seem to be fixated on Len10, what's up?

Also, are you an official Slingshot Rep now?

His S-loop:


And still going sick and big, and if you work for Slingshot - why the H### did you what to loose the guy with 150.000 views in 1,5 month...??? a bit bitter? :P Tell your boss to pay his riders what they are worth :P hehe And creds to BEST to getting the sickest icon out there! Met him a long time ago, and a nice guy! But I understand that people like envy the biggest balls in kiteboarding... and for some that turns out in criticism since they haven´t got any female contact in while... :P hahahaha


And last winter I saw this under the mountain - sick man - his first time...:

He was trying to loop the kite, and then when the kite was halfway round the rotation (at its lowest point), loop it in the opposite direction to draw an S in the sky
The video above is "just" a megaloop followed by another loop in the opposite direction
He explains it here at 2:40
