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.

Sorry guys but to make a REAL megaloop you must be on 9m or less and over 30 knots and short lines doesnt count(never saw Ruben doing them with shorter than 18m)....people say that they look identical and boring...well as i say if my grandma had balls could make even a single on :lol: :lol: but every megaloop can kill you....this is me crashing with 77km/h from 10m+ cause i used an extra second to decide for a downloop or a kiteloop :shake:

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

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!
