I don t think thats a proper kite loop. If it is, then I do them all the time.

No SOL, it was ofri agrov (don't know exactly) anyway, it is an israeli kiter and he rides airrush. Check http://www.kitesite.co.il for more of him.

aren't you supposed to bring the kite down to the same height as the rider, aka both on the sme height over the water?

Both jumps are kite loops just the diffrance is one is a transition kite loop and the other one is a normel loop.

Sorry, but on the first movie, the kite does not loop. I wouldn't call that a kiteloop. A transition is possible with a kiteloop. You just need to have more airtime as on the second movie.

And you do not need to be as high as your kite (though that's killer offcourse :o )
