Here is an excellent description of backloop technique which I have copied from the yahoo kitesurf group: ************************************* From: "Gurpreet Pandher" <gkpandher@tinyonline.co.uk> Date: Mon Feb 11, 2002 3:44 pm Subject: RE: [ksurf] Move/Trick Discussions Here's what I wrote on back...

I have collected some very short video clips (only a few seconds each) of back loops, forward loops, and spins. These clips are useful if you are trying to learn these moves.

Sounds like a bad idea to me. When you are airborn and lose your board, it should be very far away from you when you land. Landing on your board can be painful.

Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best.
Good work Wolfgang. I like it.

This looks like it is not prone to tangles and is better than any scheme where a stopper is tied on the line with a knot. (knots weaken and shorten the line).

What I look for in any kiteboarding magazine is tips and techniques. Show me sequence shots of riders doing tricks and descriptions of how they do it. A magazine can have all levels from how to do your first jump, to how to do board off tricks. ..just my opinion in case any publishers read this. Chr...

Your guess of 9 to 19 knots is probably about right. Naish has always published absurd wind ranges for their kites ..just ignore them.

Yes the X2 12m is far more powerful than the Airblast 8.4. I regularly kite with two friends on these airblasts and in light wind I always have way more power.

Ahhh.. Now I know who you are Marley. I ran into you at Nitinat. I remember I was happy to get two or three hours kiting every day, but you'd always get twice that. And I have never seen anyone do so many no-handed loops. Anyway, don't tell anyone about Nitinat Lake or it will become too crowded. Sh...
