How to pop 180 from heelside to toeside

Instructional video for doing pop 180 kitesurfing. This video goes through the steps of performing a pop 180 from your heels to your toes on a twin tip kite board with a few tips to make it easy and smooth.

Kitesurfing pop 180 from heelside to toeside is easy enough to do, but there are a couple of small things you can do to make it easier.

Here are the steps for a pop 180 from heelside to toe side Kitesurfing.

1. Travel with moderate speed with your kite half way between 12 and the water
2. Drop your front arm and open up your chest
3. Spot takeoff area/ ramp
4. Edge slightly upwind as you load up with legs and pop up into the air
5. Pivot hips
6. Absorb landing with legs
7. Lean into your toeside rail and edge upwind

I hope this helps progress your Kitesurfing!
