Your explanation reaches my english understanding limit but I think I get your point ; I understand that you talk about moving the kite up, while I describes a downloop; I also think that this downloop method would not work with a LEI or a race kite because it will collapse when loosing all tension line during 3-4 seconds ; however in say 4-5 knots, if I change my direction and go toward the kite before having made at least half of the kite loop, due to my apparent speed downwind which is relatively high vs real wind, I loose significant tension and the kite (the Pulsion at least but very few kite would hang up in the air) will stop moving and go in straight line due to this tension loss while I am carving downwind... then the kite dies (too far in the opposite window) or turns too wide and hits the water in case of half loop.
In reality with the 15m2, traction becomes too hard for my 60 kg during the downloop, so I am forced to release the tension by initiating (just a little bit) the turn while the kite has not completelly finished the loop, but in that case I try to turn the hydrofoil the minimum possible to force maintaining a high tension up to the end of the loop, and then I turn tight the hydrofoil to pass the pure downwind direction shortly and point upwind to re-tension again as fast as possible.
But maybe it is a bad habit that the Pulsion allows me because of its really impressive slack line stability ; you can see it a bit in this video at 0:40 (now I try to carve even later but you can see how the Pulsion is immobile until I tension again the lines), at 1:25 (from toeside so I was forced to initiate the turn sooner) , a bit at 3:15 (but carving was still already too early vs what i like to do):
You can see also at 1:15 a gibe with kite up (no downloop) but I feel I can use this methode only if the wind is a bit higher (here say 8 knots at that moment on the video). I must say I love downloops, so might be biaised
. And with this wind, any new trick tries is a high risk to swim back to shore
I think that long lines are an advantage in that configuration. Open to your reaction to maybe better catch your points.
