Are you sure you can perform those tricks with style, different winds conditions, and kites, at different altitudes??, if the answer is yes, go and try some blind riding or focus in some kiteloops transitions.

In my case, because I don't have all the time I want to try unhooked movement, I decided to focus and master hook tricks...but that is personal preference.


Cheers

Is it really easier looping the kite while hooked in?

I know you have to be more careful with your steering when unhooked, but I'm inclined to think you'd be less fearful of a big wipeout if you could just let go the bar during the loop (although I know commitment is key).

That said, I guess it depends on your kite too, since a kite that can depower almost totaly when the bar is let go will instill you with more confidence.

Check out one of the kiteboarding progression vids they are great for helping visualize your new tricks before you try them!

Unhooked Raileys..great fun
The hardest part is getting the confidence and getting used to unhooking and hooking back in
Once you get used to it its a blast :D

Then move onto s bends

Backloop kiteloop, back/front rolls to toeside, transitions etc

The fatsand advanced DVD is well worth a look, gives you some great ideas to focus on
