Hello Toby, I am a new fan of the Oldschool.

It looks like to me a very nice style.

I have curiosity for knowing that kite you were using in the video, all the meters of lines, which measured of board, and that intensity wind towards.
Thank you very much.

Hi Oliver,

glad you like it ;-)

I used a Vegas08 16.0. Wind are around 20 knots. Lines 25m.
The board is a Shinn 2009 129x39.

( I am sorry, translator's English online)

Thank you for the information. It is difficult nowadays to see someone with 16 meters and 20 knots.

Comets of 16 meters seem to be alone for lightwind!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

all that you weigh? I weigh 65 kg and am navigating now with 14 m C and board 134 x 39.

I think that my table is a bit big it is difficult to me to cut the water with more of 18 knots.

Oldschool is very enterteining, I hope that the people encourage to write here and to tell his experiences or to put his videos. It hurts that always it is difficult that someone films :D :D

true, hard to get the stuff on tape! But now with the camrig.com I can film myself ;-)

The 14 with 65 kg means more power than my 16 with my 90 kg ;-)

I think up to 135cm the board is still ok, if not wider than 42cm. 39cm wide sounds good.
But to hold you 14 in stronger winds you should get a smaller board for sure...then you should also be able to edge better for more height in your jumps.

Did you also see the Old School in da House Part 1+2 before, from 2008?

Yes, they are very good videos, i have download them. I am charmed with the transitions of walking for the water.

I envy this wind of 20 knots for the big airs and the flat water.

Here in Valencia, Spain, many days the wind does not pass from 15 knots, sometimes even the 18 and when there is enough luck it comes to the 20.

Greets.

15 is not really much, but should be ok for practicing the "Jesus Walk"

See here how to do it:

Ohh, that good the article!!

I have many desires of which these weekend there is wind and could practise, practise and practise.

I have thinking the first to try it without catching the board with the hand, simply extracting it of the water and supporting it upside-down, with the keels towards the sky rubbing the water with the tail. When I control the movement of the kite already to try to catch the board with the hand.

But I am in the habit of having a problem. Not if it is because the harness I take it very tightly and you prop the neopreno. I cannot shrink the sufficient body to manage to catch the board for the handle.

Yes I can do grabs for the tail and the nose, but I do not come to the handle. That is not for lack of flexibility.
Has someone this problem? Or am I the only one? :oops: :oops: :oops:

Toby, other one asks, the kiteloop at the end of the trick also you it do with the Vegas 16 m?

This weekend I have been in The Manga of the Mar Menor, spot " isla del Ciervo " Murcia, Spain.
The wind was gusty with 27-28 knots of maxim. I have used kite C of 10 meters of the year 2005 (few depower). Too much wind for my 65 kg. I have not do kiteloop for the " jesus walk " but practise the beginning of the trick.

Already I can catch the handle of the board, my problem was a very tight harness. It towards that not can to shrink the sufficient body. My stomach is small but it does pressure. :D

I will practise more.

I am going to propose my friends buy between all a video camera, we are in the habit of being 7-8 kiters. Normally there is someone resting so that he films.

If the video camera break it will be few loss between all. :D

yes, I do the trick mainly with the 16. The kite does not loop all the way, but will be all the way down.

You shouldn't have too much power.

You need to have the kite pretty high when you popup, then slowly steer it, and when you feel you need more power, pull all the way to start the loop.

You need to be flexible...not sure if I can do it with a long wetsuit!

Go to Brazil and practice is in one of the lagoons...there you will land it ;-)
