Andres it's not hard at all, it's really easy, I reckon much easier than those board off footy thingies you're teddy likes so much although I haven't tried them yet I must admit, but are you sure you got that the right way round? The second way you describe is what I'm doing, really overdoing recalling the kite and I think it's really easy underpowered because the kite turns back towards zenith so stays higher in the window, the way you call easy is the best way to have the kite looping at the centre of the window imo, from what I've seen, i wouldn't try it myself, I think you're much more likely to get pulled horrizontally. So I think you're got the hard and easy way mixed up there mate.Andres_Santacruz wrote:Dimitri Maramenides, pro rider for hana crew and airush, came down to a competition here last april. He was explaining that there are two ways to do the kite loop, one that is "easy" and one that is "hard". The first one("EASY"), is let's say you are going left, you pull the bar right to jump, once you are in the air, you keep pulling it right, and the kite loops clockwise. By the time you are going to land, the kite should be going up again.
The second, is let's say you are going left, you pull the bar to the right to jump, then pull the bar back towards the left to do a counter clockwise rotation. I don't know how they have time to do this, they must really land with a lot of power and speed.
Sounds really hard to me, i'm not ready to try yet, besides i don't know if my psycho 9.5 would turn fast enough.
