You gotta stop calling loops out of glides mega loops.. They are not. I do triples, quads, and many more, including double s-loops out of glides all the time.....but calling them mega loops is disrespectful to truley mega looping on the flats....

What are you saying?? And are you really calling people names? Is it Me Your calling names?.? I am 3 time US champion commenting on the title of the video, and the miss use of the term mega loop, some thing the snowkiting community agreed about 5 or six years ago..or are you calling Chasta multiple time, world champion, a piece of shit....perhaps some on else is a piece of shit??.?

I don't understand your post, or your name calling. I think I understand you may not being very nice and perhaps not be educated enough on what loops out of glides compaired to true Mega loop is??????

There have been riders doing 5 plus loops out of glides for years.....

Perhaps you just do not know anything about snow kiting lingo or the proper names of tricks?...or respect the riders who have progressed the sport, and your best bet is to make insults on line?????

Here's hadlow explaining what a mega loop is to you.

Billy is a boss and you calling him a piece of shit pisses me off. Most people dream of having balls as big as his when he shreds.

I hope your having fun up in Alaska banging dudes.

Nice viddie lolo pay no attention to the guys fighting in this thread. I like that first loop in each sequence the best there's a good yank. The 2nd and 3rd loops don't do much for me but I assume you need them to cushion your landing.

nice loops lolo! To me it kinda seems that on a fast and straight glide and throwing a loop can generate more power than a lenten style style loop off the water. Our airspeed and the fact that you could be flying 25 mph into the wind equals a huge loop. I do these sometimes off the hill but me being 210 pounds I feel like my kite is going to explode. keep on posting! :jump:
