Good to hear gvironda. Nice job. Wen you're ready, get yourself a Screamer and hit the moon! Keep up the progression!

All the pleasure is mine Mr.gvironda. I am glad this video was able to help you.
Now you need to do this on a SCREAMER model and you will see the difference in how much longer and higher you can go. You will probably gain another 3 to 5 seconds depending the conditions.

Thanks Dimitri!

Great tips for jumping -- i've seen a lot of videos but never came across such a good explanation!

Now back to work on my timing between 1 and 2.

Dimitri - Where is the kite in the sky when you do steps 2/3? If the wind is moderate and you start with the kite at 10 o'clock and 60 degrees off the horizon. When you get to steps 2/3 is it at 1 o'clock and still about 60 degrees?

When the wind is stronger I'm able to fly the kite higher and my jumps are a lot better. Sure part of it is because of wind speed, but I also feel like part of it is because of the position of the kite in the sky. It's more overhead so the lift is more vertical.
