...why not? I've only just started playing about with transitions recently, been doing hooked/unhooked kiteloops for ages now.
Me Also ; was taught to do a Kite-loop ---- Years ago, as a way
to get on-plane in very Very Light wind !!
And it Works.
Also, you can actually De-power your kite in a kite-loop by simply pulling
on the break-line, instead of using the bar ; that decreases the diameter
of a normal kite-loop and the inside tip will actually go backwards. The center of
rotation is about where the second strut is located on my 2010 Edge.
I don't have ankles that work , so i was taught That one because i use the
sheeting in/out on the bar for most All my balance.
You could learn Kite-loops by leaving your board on the beach and do a
body-drag ; FUN way to launch yourself a few feet out of the water.
But LEARN that in (("LIGHT")) wind .
