This is the movie, of which we are talking about in this thread ( I perform the kiteloops ) .
My message was to "Reconsider the kiteloop as a safety problem" , "Control your flight with kiteloop" , "Avoid to be lifted" etc..
I have never said in my movie you should do a kiteloop in uplift ( eventhough I have prooved that it is possible in certain conditions )
On the 27 of March, 2011 I asked the following question:
Too many words, let's be constructive:
Please answer the following question: (regarding the minute 1.02 of my movie) :
Do you consider that kiteloops (if he mastered them) could have
helped Malik to control his landing, and to make it smoother? could he have
had picked his landing area, and have helped not to fall with his head
dangerously close to the rocks?
You have answered my question 11 months later.

I have no problem using this technique when the air is not rising, which is what will cause a lofting which is the title of this thread and what we are discussing. Using loops in this manner will bring the rider down, this is what you would want to do after you move out of the rising air causeing you to get lofted. Any move ment to catch air ind make lift will be better then just falling.
This proves that you finally came to our conclusion, that the kiteloop can be an " Advanced technique to bail out in air loft ", when you are descending, and it is worth to master it.
Further on is the movie which proves that it is possible to bail out with kiteloop in an updraft:
Between 0:47 and 0:51 seconds, the kite is at zenith and there is unsignificant movement of it. Therefore, there is no movement to generate the jump. At the second 0:51 the uplift starts. "He didn't hesitate doing the kiteloop, with his right hand, at second 0:52 , and he did also look at his kite as he reacted.".
This I have said before, and I have said in this thread other things that are worth to be read again. Before posting something else, please read again carefully what I have stated in this thread ( I repeat myself ) ....
Each time you will derive from the subject of this thread, I will re-post this message. I am waiting for information ( movies or comments ) that will bring new experience / things, on this subject.
