How do you move the kite forward. If you loop the kite it'll will correct your body position and you'll definitely ride off with speed. The loop will determine how much. I'm not sure you'd do it without a loop tho.PeaBody wrote:Thanks... No, I am not looping the kite, and yes I drag the front hand...
Ok will go for speed first, then try the loop if that fails. I am initiating the pop when the kite hits 12, I guess if I carry more speed try and pop at 11?
Yes, definitely agree with this. After you're comfortable with the trick, you will also find that you can speed up or slow down your rotation at the end of the trick (once you are at the point of spotting your landing) by using your hand to leverage against the water. Push or pull against the water to change your final rotation speed. This can make your transition more precise.Windstoked wrote:The handplant backroll transition is a good example of a trick based around function as well as form. The handplant keeps you low, rotates you gradually around backwards for the roll, and prolongs the hang time and thus delays the kiteloop, making it a smooth, graceful transition.
