SURF 8 & 12 for the waves. RENEGADE 6.5 and 9 for all around kiting. And some times I use my son's JUNIOR PRO 4 when it blows 45+ for the waves.

THanks!

WHen you redirect the kite after a megaloop (since the kite is behind you and you want it to come back in front of you), are you using a downloop or uploop (using your backhand)? Does it matter which?

Hello dracop,
To answer your question. It all depends on your body position and how you are feel like it at that moment. Some times I use a downloop and some times I use an uploop. It just depend on how high you are and how far your kite is behind you. But one thing for sure you need to move the kite so it stays always in front of you.

I hope this answers your question.
Any way, this is an other video but this time of my son and I doing some looping action.
