I put a few of Anton's edging advice to the test this weekend, it wasn't windy enough to try and jump really, I was out on the 17m and it's a pig.

Instead of letting off the power in gusts I edged the way the tutorial shows and it was amazing! I basically headed the most upwind I've ever done, it was 12kts and I was literally doing loops (wide loops, not knobhead ones) around a windsurfer. Good times! Good advice.

I purchased the video's too, because I had the feeling I should go a lot higher for the power in the kite that I had. It did help me identify some problems (edge before takeoff mostly) and I'm jumping consistently higher at the moment. He does explain some of the kite specific theory wrong, but that doesn't matter in the end.

Still struggling with choppy conditions unfortunately, and we have those a lot over here.

Yep, same here on the North Sea. So much easier when the conditions are ideal.

I agree with Grigorib, Dimitri's video has most of what you need to jump high, that and lots of practise. OR, you can take a 9m kite in 30-40 knots and waves and do this
