Re: Kite Loops

Dears, i MIGHT finally start trying some kiteloops this year...would like to get some basic principles straight before take off.

Re: Stupid question - what does overpowered feel like?

Let me add that there is obviously not a universal "knots to weight to kite size" overpowered formula. A lot of it comes down to skill, an expert rider will be able to be in control and be "fully powered" in much more wind than a beginner, all else being equal. Like i'd need to be on 3m kite to be i...

Re: all kite reviews are garbage. What really matters.

The only review that count is how you personally feel a kite relatively to your own style and preferences.
All the rest is BS, including stating what a good kite should or should not have.

(except maybe for construction quality, that is the only objective parameter).

The principle of pop is exactly the same hooked and sending as unhooked and doing handle passes. The purpose of pop in an unhooked trick is to convert as much of your speed into height as possible.
