I thought the music was appropriate, of course you have to loop it it to cover the distance of the dvd.


Yeah, you're right, and you can actually hear, when it loops. :rollgrin:

the choice would have been spending about 20.000 Euro more for Gema music...
Since I will already loose a lot of money on this project, I didn't see any sense in doing so!

Happy looping !!!

I watched the first disc....got to buy some more beer. Toby can you elaborate on your technique a bit. I see you using front hand to handle the board except when you do spins then you go to your back hand. Is there a reason behind this or it is just your preference. I use smaller kite and I always leave front hand on the bar otherwise shit tend to happen. What are the negatives of handling the board with back hand if any?

correct, no rotation: right hand (besides passing the board at some tricks)
rotation, left hand. few tricks with right though.

I started without rotation, so used the right hand. And sicne using the Microloop, my left hand can still steer the kite forward a bit while flying. Once the right hand is back on the bar I can pull it full power to have it in the right position for the landing.

Once I started with rotation, I did front rotations, since they get me higher.
And with rotating it is better to have the front hand on the bar, sicne I send the kite back, and then need to steer it forward, specially for the landings, so they are fluid and I get enough speed to land the trick.
Plus, my right arm (righthander) is stronger, so I can pull down the bar more during the jump.

Using the backhand for rotations (not in ML) will cause the kite to bee too far behind the zenith for a clean landing.
