Re: first 360 hydrofoil from Marc blanc !

Thanks for all the info Horst and Jumptheshark! Yes, I am aware of the difference between the "normal downwind" 360 (which is basically a jibe without footswitch immediately followed by a tack from toeside, so a relatively "standard" move) and the state of the art "around the world" trick, such as s...

Re: first 360 hydrofoil from Marc blanc !

Maybe explain what is different about what you are asking for. As I understand it your looking at this 360 around the world move as a continuum not unlike kite loops, where at one end you have a full on powered kite loop and on the other a heli loop or down loop. All roughly the same mechanics with...

Re: first 360 hydrofoil from Marc blanc !

No reply? Pffft. posted two vids within minutes that cover the mechanics complete with kite view as you'd asked as well as tips and pitfalls. They are the same mechanics for what you want, just you get some slack line. I acknowledged them in the thread (thanks again) but they did not answer my ques...

Re: first 360 hydrofoil from Marc blanc !

Just digging up this thread again, looking for advice (I have posted in another thread but no reply..): Just managing the first "around-the-world-cheat-version" trick, i.e. the around the around-world but like Fred Hope sometimes does them (on long lines where the lines go slack and he somehow manag...

Re: what are you workin on? kitefoil strapless freestyle progression

Thanks, I have seen those, this is not what I mean, those are the "classic" around-the-world ones. In some Slingshot promotion videos (UFO f.ex. at 0:53 sec), you see Fred Hope doing the 360 with SLACK lines.. As mentioned, the advantage is that you dont seem to need short lines.. Its doable, I have...

Re: what are you workin on? kitefoil strapless freestyle progression

Yes, back to the topic: Just managing the first "around-the-world-cheat-version" trick, i.e. the around the around-world-trick (basically a downwind 360 around the kite) but like Fred Hope does them (on long lines where the lines go slack and he somehow manages to catch the kite back after the board...

Re: what are you workin on? kitefoil strapless freestyle progression

I agree that one session in perfect conditions is more effective than 3 sessions in the normal choppy sea. I must disagree :-) Train the move in shitty conditions and it will be so much easier once you have good conditions. Witnessed this many times.. It applies especially to the roll tack: If you ...
