Progressive edge is just that an edge that gets progressively stronger. Forget this term unless you are behind a boat or at a cable. It does not work on a kite because you will loose all power by the time it is to release your edge.mrKnotty wrote: For a proper understanding, the meaning of the terms should be clear I think.
For example, what is "progressive edge"? And, what is exactly that you do when releasing? Is it the kite pulling you from your rail, or do you actively flatten your board you release the rail? Or even pop by stretching your legs?
Also it seems that when I build up a nice speed, I can't pop well, while at a moderate speed it works much better.
Release is the same. The big thing is really pulling the bar to your hips. I'm having to relearn how to pass since I had surgery on both shoulders last fall. I've started doing some 3's at the cable park since I don't have to pull as hard as I do with a kite.dandaka wrote:TheJoe, What about HP release? Do you have to release with straight and compact body to be able to make it?
And if you don't need progressive edge, what shape of arc is best for HP? Or it doesn't matter?
And what about factors leading to maximum slack?
