decide on what your goal is and then your progression list will come naturally. Go look at videos of sick riders, find an amazing trick that is way out of your range then go back to the basics and progress a step at a time towards it.

"Can you do a tack flip hooked in?" Yes you can. With kite a little lower, fully complete the first horizontal backroll so you are looking downwind and then throw a tucked backflip while holding onto the bar with your back hand, grab indy and land toeside. (You can boost this trick too if you wish but the kite needs to be moving down and forward during the second rotation)
Keeping the kite low in the window and moving forward while holding on with your back hand is the tough part. I put the center lines between my middle and ring fingers.

Wow - you made these!! I really like your vids a lot. My fave's are your front to blind and shifty 3 - both these vids make the trick appear much more 'do-able' and less life threatening, than all the other vids available for the same tricks. Great work! Thanks.

thx, it was life threatening tho.... we didnt know some big crocs were hanging out under the mangrove until later. my mate the filmer had the most dangerous job.. in knee to waist deep murkey water.. where most will not go on a good day.

yeah small steps.. it was very light winds but showed what is still possible for progressing to the next level.

tiny steps add up if you work hard at them
