Excellent video. I think learning how to crash is as equally important as learning a trick. Crashing and bailing is what makes you stronger and gives you confidence, excellent video

Nice vid to get started!

I'm looking forward for the next one.

I actually did the first kiteloops on a strapless surfboard. I would add that the bigger the board, the better in the first tries, because you are able to ride a smaller kite for a given windspeed then kiteloops are fearless.

Any nugget like surfboard is ideal to do the first kiteloops (I did it with my Naish Bullet "Nugget" copy :rollgrin: )

Yes, excellent video. Different from what you usually hear/see. Just those fingers flying.. a bit wannabe rapstar like. Best not to sit too close to the screen.. But really good, looking forward to the next one.

Watching the last video I think I'm stucked in the episode two...

I jump well, I do the comlpete kiteloop well... The catch! This is where I fail.

I'm still figuring out how much bar out I need to let just after the loop to let the kite catch me right.

My loops always end in a hard crash: too much bar in the kite get stuck climbing back to the zenith, or too much bar out combined with the fast forward travel generated by the loop, lines get slack and in both scenaros you have no kite power to smooth the landings (my Shinn Ronson do almost all the hard work!)

ActualIy I feel like when I was a begginer learning to waterstart and trying to figure out wich was the right amount of power needed just to ride...
