Nice! Keep it up. The NRG looks awesome. Great choice in a first kite that will take your progression far.

Thanks, no complaints about it thus far! But first time out I lost my chicken loop because I wasn't hooked into the donkey dick and didnt pass my leash through :S

But lesson learned, I never forget now!

Good Video, one bit of constructive criticism... keep your hands closer to the center of the bar before this becomes a bad habit. I know it feels like you need them out there for control but it is really going to hinder your progression and it looks goofy. Once you get used to keeping your hands in the center you will have a better stance, you will more easily control the kite with one hand and you will not over steer when attempting your first backrolls.Keep at it!

Cheers

Pete
