Hi, i am kiting for a long time now, but started to push my airstyl progress since this year. (Getting older so have to hurry up). I have been dreaming of doing this styl for long time now. But hardly progressed. So this year i started to push it harder. Got bigger kites in stronger winds. First 14 then 18. And indeed Toby, it helped me progress. I learned 720 one foot slide, couple of board off's (tailspin, side stredge, board down feet up). And if i feel confident 720 back board off. It is all without style yet. Just happy to land them. And i am coming.
Some days i go on the water and i can not get the hangtime. How do you do it Toby? I am working on the low kiteloop now. To get the hangtime in lower winds. And to do slides/walks. But i am afraid of looping the 18 when wind is getting harder. Mental block here for now.
But all in all, i am very happy with this years progress. All the tips from this forum and the dvd were a big help.
