Surviving the Death Loop
Kiteboarding tutorial video about fighting against uncontrolable kiteloop, also called the "Death Loop". Highly recommended to see for beginner and intermediate kiteboarders.
Example footages for the video were taken from here:
https://youtu.be/9ewc5R9MXfk - Original footage by Michael Krøse
https://youtu.be/AeQgcY5kJfs - Original footage by Daniel Liesveld
This video footage was taken in light to medium wind conditions with 8m North Rebel kite. Though I successfully used the technique, described in the video, also in heavy wind conditions up to 35 knots on the same kite, please mind that the steering line pressure may vary, depending on wind speed, kite type and kite size!
Please note, that this technique is recommended for use in case of serious safety system failure. If your quick release system is not blocked, I recommend to use the QR first, and to release the kite completely in case of any danger.
