I had several times gear breaking on me and a kite collars wen I did a kite loop.
No fun at all...and at that height it is just crazy.

Huge respect for their balls! I am sure with 30 or 35+ they will not be doing this.

And now you know why I am using an 18 in not too strong winds...I just have too much fun with this without risking injuries every time.
You need stronger lines when looping kites in 35knots + I have not broken a line in years!!! It's the most fun thing I think there is to do in life

We will be doing this till 50+ the reward far out weighs the risk!

I think you would have had a mighty show down with Tom H!

Tom H was doing some insane tricks.

Loved his style :)

For sure, I only use Slingshot or Flysurfer lines as I think they are the best, over engineered lines on the market.

Never had an issue with these lines.
