looks like you paniced and stopped the kite from looping by pulling on the other side of the bar. if youd let it loop you wouldve been ok

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought he did a double backroll with downloop, that is actually harder to stick a landing than a kiteloop double because there is a lot less lift if you can nail it it's really sweet. I didnt see panic, what I did see is missing the timing, you are gonna crash a few times before you get it right.


also not sure what a rotation/backroll/flip is anymore now that Toby said something about it.

Toby makes up names as he goes. I think it has to do with the language barrier.

I mean really Airstyle = Oldschool with pointed toes... you can call shit anything you want apparently...

i like airstyle better. oldschool is kind of ambiguous. If you seen lou wainman on sliders, handle passes, mobes, blind judge on a pickle fork board with no leash back in 2000 and 2001 you know there's nothing new about wakestyle riding on a kiteboard.

Nice to see people coming to help you. Kudos to the kiters who help each other out.
Oh, and deeper water might reduce the risk!

Please get a neck xray (if you have not done so already). I would not be surprised if you have fractured something. Sincerely hope you didn't but better to get it checked out/ruled out.

you loop it too early. You need more lift the a double rotation you cannot just compensate with an early loop. Also, use your head to do rotations..it will give you more control. :-)


apart from that awesome. Go for it!!!
