I can loop all of my kites in nice aerial kiteloops - 11m 2014 SS RPM, 12m 2014 LF NRG, 16m 2013 LF NRG (toughest one to loop), and the v3 17m Blade Fat Lady (very easy to loop).dyyylan wrote:The problem isn't your weight, it's the size of the kite. You can kiteloop an 11 if it's something that makes tight pivotal turns (I used to do loops on my 12m envy) but be prepared to get dropped when the kite stalls out halfway through the turn, or if you send the kite too high and get too much air. Really need a 9m, but you might need to move out of FL if you want to ride a kite that size.
This area is just one example as I am currently working on it. The actual topic of the post is asking for a list of heavier riders. I used the kitelooping issue as an example since I wish to know how far it can be taken on larger kites.Do-it wrote:I'm confused about what you're asking.... About looping? or about how hard the kite pulls in a loop? The type of kite greatly determines the yank factor. What do you fly?
I would agree but I doubt he weighs more than 190. He is definitely a taller pro than most.dyyylan wrote:The only actually progressive rider I can think of that's bigger is Eric Rienstra. He puts a 5th line on his fuels and doesn't leash suicide because of how hard he falls. So every fall unhooked = kite flags out.
