I did my first backroll loops the other day, and was surprised how easy it was. Don't get me wrong I still had some wipeouts, but if you loop the kite late (low) there really isn't much pull. I'm also starting the backroll before starting the loop, I think that takes some of the pull out of it.
I'm looking forward to better wind to try some more. I want to try to keep my forward momentum going until the kite pulls me back. That looks more like the video is showing.
go out lit 9 meters in 25 knots, once you start you must commit, and pull hard. After the kite loops push the bar out so the kite catches you and land with the board pointed downwind. if you have to bail, land on your butt, save your knees.

As far as I understand, if you throw the loop at the top of your jump, its less intense than if you pull it as you are leaving the water.
This depends on how high you boost. If you boost moderately like the kiter in the video you will notice he is sending his kite into the loop almost as soon as he leaves the water. If you get a mega boost then, yes, you can wait until you are at the top of your boost to loop the kite.
