With my 10m north dice it works very well, so it is fast enough. Probably with an larger kite is not a good tecnique but as I said I did not try it.

1.moderate speed
2.edge really hard
3.pull sharp and cut your bar until 11.30 or 1.30
4.pop and sheet in
5.redirect the kite
6.practice
7.practice
8.practice
9.correct timing
10.once you nail it use a ramp(a wave can give you 2m+ meters easy)

Dimitri's video is very good.

Good example seen at Tarifa KOTA.

At 26 seconds keeping up wind, goes slightly off upwind reach whilst (notice smaller wake).
Whilst doing this is send kite. At point lift Kevin rails hard (large wake).

I also find being heavier that a larger kite moves faster for me.

Kite size is unique to you and your size/ability.

I don't think this has been fully answered - for the highest jumps, are people sheeting the bar all the way in before take off, or leaving it sheeted out? I have always pulled it all the way in at the point of edging hard, or just after - but I'm starting to think that's not the best thing to do, as it might be forcing the kite to drop back in the window a bit, thus loosing some upward pull, and creating more downwind pull?
Is it best to not sheet the bar right in until later in the boost?

if you go downwind is just because you did not edge hard enough. It is easier to edge in flat water, while in choppy water is more difficult to go higher
