holding bar behind back, turn into that arm=unwrapped.
Turn to the direction of the arm behind back. If you mess around with a bar and lines hooked to tree or door you will understand.

Sorry, i think a get it now. I thought both hands needs to be holding at everytime the bar. When you start your turning you need to ungrab the bar with your wright hand. :thumb:

Starting wrapped doesnt look good in kiteboarding like in wakeboarding.

Anyway a Wrapped KGB its easier then a KGB so why do you want to do the easier one? ;)

Well Wrapped with a kite is harder than a wrapped wakeboarding trick, But I just think it would be cool to do some different stuff that not many people do.

I guess everything in kiting could be easier then in wakeboarding, you just have to put the kite a little higher.


Here you have a wrapped KGB:

Cesar throws a wrapped trick in the '05 North Team video. He does a wrapped back roll but doesnt un-wrap, he lands the same way he takes off. Thing is, hes got his front hand holding the flying line and taking much of the load I guess. Seems like hes working up to unwrapping, pretty dope. Also a sick shot in his part of a front loop/Sbend. Charles Delau's part is unreal too.

So if I turn to toe side, hold on with kiteside arm, bar twisted clockwise, then heelside turn and unwrap twist bar anticlockwise and ride way, I have performed a mini, degree of difficulty low, wrapped move?

Correct?

Daz :roll:
