The around 32 seconds? That one is interesting in seeing how different the turn radius of the kite can be depending on your technique.
I was there for that race and was amazed by Riley Gibbs's jibes. Watching him was when it first clicked for me how the jibe could work on short lines with the big foil kite. I think he said he was on 10m lines with his 15m kite. I think he can just do whatever he wants as far as timing and it's just going to work out because he never slows down to less than 30 knots He also might have held off on the downloop the second time because he was close to the other kiter. The timing of the first jibe seems to be closer to the timing that works for me (albeit at about 10 knots less board speed...)Slyde wrote: In this https://youtu.be/d67fsR9NszE video at 28 secs there is a gybe from natural to switch where the down loop seems to be initiated before the gybe, followed by a switch to natural gybe where the gybe happens well before the down loop is initiated but I think in both situations he keeps way better speed through the gybe than me.
