I have started kiting several years ago, and since 3 years ago I think I almost have the backmobe.
Sometimes landed it, but rarely.
I land the trick with the board, but i never catch the bar, I let everytime one second before in the air the bar instinctively, and I dont know why my body has this memory error.
A few sessions ago, I have noticed that if when I start the trick (kite at 30º or 40º), and get out of the pop, I steer the kite with the fronthand, sending the kite down, it is easier to pass the bar. Is it possible?
Because it is a little bit difficult to do that because when you do the handle pass, you only let the rear hand on the bar, and so the kite will go up, difficulting the pass... but in pro videos, you can see how they do backmobes and the kites goes down, and normally, leting the rear hand on the bar before catching the bar with the front one, the kite would go up, not down... I dont know how they do that... they put hands inverted? XD
I hope you will understand what I mean... another thing to help this may be connect the lines to the kite in a heavier bar pressure?
Any more tips to help with passing the bar in the air?
Thanks very much.
