I like pj sofine's definition of a megaloop the best, it's what you call a kiteloop when nobody is watching. "You should have seen that megaloop I just threw it was so sick."

nikalaitzian can you permit the video I get I'm getting access denied on both versions.

For me, like others said is:

Kiteloop: over 9m kites and under 10m high.
Megaloop: 7m or under and over 10m high.

Sick video. Notice the surface of the water from the wind. Any guesses as to the wind speed?

Was that a 9m 2008 Bularoo you were flying?

Agree with Hadlow (who can´t??? he invented those things along with lenten) - a megaloop is a loop over 10m were the kite goes as low as possible and catches you again...
Don´t call a plain kiteloop megaloop....
But sure I bet Lenten can loop a 11, that does not me he dares to megaloop it...
But cool to see Lenten getting his own Best Fuel.. ehm Extract.. or something kite ;)
Best had cuben fibre working on the HP, so might work fine on the "Fuel" as well.... hehe :lol:
Should be a bad ass kite, cool to se Best daring to make something with such a small market, totally not what they wanted to do back in the days when even a simple C was a no go. Now they have TWO!!! Hope to see some sick videos of Lenten on it soon!
