Sergio,
I copy here your nice success video. Congratulation again !
I see that you sometime finish by a loop and sometime not. What are the pro an cons ?

Hi Regis,

thank you, nothing special about the loop. You have to enter the manouver with a half kite loop and you have to exit it the same way. While entering requires a downloop for maximum force it is not important how to leave as at that point the manouver has been done anyway. It is the same when I start in no wind, I just do it like occasion feels better or where I find more wind window space to loop.

Want to try it again in the near future with a more "conventional setup". While also the last one was a conventional high wind race setup, it was just way out of its own windrange. So want to try bigger kites to maybe make it a more "every day manouver" but not sure yet if it will work.

Also wonder a bit, that I have never seen a video from anybody else (apart Marc for sure) as it is not so hard and equipment not so special at all. But maybe most about that you have to use equipment not fitting to conditions. If there will be anytime a race where the wind drops hard from 35 knts to 10 knts I want to have all those racers with extremly higher abbility than me seeing to do it, best all together one behind another, should look great :rollgrin:

I agree with you about the beauty of the trick !
I think the rare videos reason are :
- unuseful trick
- fear to swim every time you fail
- idea is quite recent.
