Yes, would be fun!

Always nice to meet other airstylers and push limits further by inspiring each other!

One day!

Nice video, good inspiracion for doing blind.
I see in the video you are riding an Edge with an North bar. I wonder what did you have to change to the north bar? Just the 5th line. It looks like you used a 5th element bar and not an quad control bar. Did you used the lines of the edge?
Thanx for any help.

Hi Zkatez,

thanks for your words. I took the Ozone bar and i compared to the North bar, so i trimmed it on the pre-lines and the game was done....i tried so many sistems before to do no hand-on-bar manouvers but they were not working good so i ask to Toby and he suggested me to use the microloop of the north bar which is a piece you have to buy separately....in my opinion it changed a lot my skills because is easy to upload and download from the harness.... it never happened to me to have problem during the land!

bye bye and good wind

Thx, but if you use the north bar with the north lines. What did you do with the safety?

Can you tell me what you consider the windrange of the 17m for you to do your tricks. And how much do you weight?
Thank you.

I'm using a 4 line bar so there is no problem, it works like all the other with the kite.

When i was in hamata i tested it with all winds and i can fight with the 17m until 25 knots....after 25 knots it becomes really difficolt to stay in the water.....i was doing really big jumps....maybe Toby can use a 17m also after 25 knots but i think he is more than 95 kg.....i'm 90 kg!

My board is a custom handmade, 135x42, really light, only 1,8kg made by kiteloose.
Big handle, i don't put big pads as i don't like fat pad because they don't help me during the boardoff and streps are really large also..furthermore i think that in airstyle the landings are softer than in wakestyle so that's an other reason why i don't use thick pads
