Popping out of the water

Postby Mikeyy » Sun Apr 07, 2013 10:54 pm

Hey guys!
In the upcoming kite season I would like to concentrate on freestyle. Last season I learned jumps using kite, but I would really like to go into wakestyle.

I tried many, many times to do the simplest/most basic thing - load & pop. And I just couldn't!
When riding really fast I tried to go downwind a little and then very sharp upwind - on movies in that moment people were just throwed in the air, but I just stopped (and I didn't even had a chance to pop).

Maybe some of you guys had the same problem, and found a solution :)?
Thanks for answers!
Mikeyy.

I found this video as the best explanation for understanding how to pop: http://youtu.be/poP5h-M7xrg

Yep, I watched that too few months ago. Problem is that theoretically I know how to do this, worse with doing it on water..
