Thanks for posting that picture of Lewis going huge with a backroll kiteloop. I wish I had the courage and skills to pull that move with that much amplitude.

I have as much desire to ride your crowded lagoon as you have riding one of my 40 knot 5m swell storms.

In fact if all I had was a shitty small crowded lagoon id flag kiting and go biking instead.

Skills yes, landing from that height and staying in control in gusty punchy 40+ kn wind does take quite some skill. Doing a juggling act under a kite with infinite hangtime takes less skills imo.

Less skills doesn't mean no skills.
