Handle air-pass tips/tricks

Postby mr_daruman » Mon Jan 31, 2011 9:03 am

Struggling to successfully pass the bar, can anyone share how its done?


I can surface pass from toeside and blind , railey to blind pass, back to blind pass, unhooked kiteloop, s-bend to blind pass...with no problems. Just can't get it right with an regular aerial pass.

I usually for a regular unhooked jump swinging the legs kind off like a railey and bringing them back forward while trying to pass. I always end up missing without even touching the bar with the other end and the kite stalling and dropping down.
When training on land with a board I can catch the bar... :-?
