nice one!

But that's why I don't like small kites...after they go high, they go fast down...I am missing the float!
Or maybe it was the wind or that kite.

You 're so good it hurts!! :lol: Excellent kiting of the sort of kiting I really enjoy seeing and trying! Your dark slide was terrific! How do you make so long? A matter of extra speed and power I suppose...
Congratulations anyway!! Keep these vids coming!! :thumb: :thumb:

Nice i like it.

Amusingly i don't have trouble with float when jumping in 35 knots. That amount wind provides heaps of lift.

Itas also interesting to see other guys locations. my local at 35 knots is house sizes whats with breakers rolling in from 1km out.

yes, the dark slide was great!
just get more speed and have power in the kite...then you can do it much longer!

5 seconds for the better jumps in this video, good float time I think , but the time I spend to lift can not be used to do the trick ...
Hydra is a very good kite, I won the hangtime (french) challenge of http://forum.flysurf.com with this kite :crazy: (6.2s) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFZXmJhmlhc

Did you do a late kiteloop on the Darkslide? didn't see the lines twist. :thumb: very impressed nice long spray with body closed to the water! probably 35 knots helped for that long slide?

If you do a long slide, you have to loop afterwards, since the kite will be to far behind.
