That's a great point from Slappysan, you need to swing under kite when you throw heliloop that way it happens overhead. If you are not swinging under kite it can still work but it won't really have that boucy feeling of a heliloop.lovethepirk wrote:My question is where do you want the kite to be traveling the moment the tail end of your board touches the water??? Do you want the kite still diving slightly downwards(typical of a solid redirect), fairly horizontally, or working it's way back up?
Regarding question, in general if done properly and loop is pretty overhead it doesn't really matter where kite is (in middle loop or after) upon landing. The kite is moving so it creates lift, it s pretty high in window so it will still pull up even if kite is heading down or sideways. You will still land pretty smoothly. I don't really like to land when kite finished loop and is at 12 because 1) your kite needs another redirect else you or kite will stall, it's not as stylish as you kind of stall and can't ride away with speed,
I wouldn't worry too much about it, I would do them early enough so that kite is at least heading down when you land, everything else is bonus and if lucky you can try to go for a second loop or half to just redirect.
Having said that when really powered on my C I have had some issues when loop completed after landing. Even if I am heading straight downwind there will be a big surge in of power and it will pop you right back off the water, that thing has so much power
I need to retreive my gopro footage from my broken computer I have a lot of fail like that from line mount, should be pretty entertaining
It's best to learn them in medium power I guess. On my new C if I mess up timing and loop goes deep in window it will feel like a megaloop even though you are on way down in strong wind it will still slingshot you downwind!
