Nice. What size torch is that? Do you pull it further over before you pull the trigger?

Just looking for your process. You definitely get the kite pretty low on your loops. :thumb:

Jump -> slow down kite at 12 -> pull the trigger?
Jump -> slow down kite at 1 -> pull the trigger?
It doesn't look like you jump redirect your kite and then loop it (ie. sissy loops).

It looks like you jump, then pull the trigger when the kite is at maybe 1 o'clock? It is a little hard to see.
They look smooth tho.

My point is that when I pull the trigger too early, the pull is too much for an old man like me. :-)

Also what do you think the wind speed is?

thanks for answering :-)

Usually I'm just trying to jump as high as possible and than till I'm still going up I pull the trigger :) I think that's the sweet thing about kite loop's when you get that yank..!
The wind that day was really gusty, so it was like 25 to 35 knots. so that was real fun.. :)
