Re: heli loop not providing lift

10-12m kite in 15-20 kn would be a good start. I start the redirecting/moving kite forward process at 4-5m height. That starts to slow the decent and at around 2-3m i pull the loop when the kite reaches almost at the front edge of the window. Also i dont pull the loop very hard so i get a little wid...

Re: heli loop not providing lift

You need to make the kite fly forward before you loop it. When coming back down from a jump first i make sure the kite is at the back of the window. If its not I pull my back hand a little to take it back again and at around 4-5m height i make a sudden short front hand pull so that the kite faces fo...

Re: What am I doing wrong and I keep breaking my TT boards?

I had the same problem for years. I snaped about 6-7 boards all at the same place ( backfoot heel side ) after hard kiteloop landings. The only board that lasted on me and got the most abuse is the Epic Spartan. When I got it Dimitri asked me to abuse it as much as i can and try to break it. This th...

Re: Flysurfer Soul 12 safety release problem

Even if the bridle length affects or not the problem is quite obvious here. The stopper point on the flysurfer bars is very long, longer than half the length of the lines and its obvious that it is trimmed to be able to flag out all Flysurfer kites and sizes. Most of the bars in the market for infla...

Re: Flysurfer Soul 12 safety release problem

I just changed a safety line from a Flysurfer infinity bar. The line is longer than half of the length of the lines. The lines are 20m (17+3) meaning that the safety line is more than 10m long( where it stops ). As this bar is to be used up to a 12m Soul (50 cm bar) i guess the soul needs a lot of s...

Re: The sad decline of aging pro kiteboarders

Being a pro boarder has nothing to do with money. It's all about the lifestyle. My last 20 years was at the beach, having a blast. No worries, no work time frame. That's what it's all about. Now i'm 44 and nothing has declined really. I am fit because of kiting and my injuries just made me a strong...
