I had my first lightwind freeride session on my North Orbit 14m Kite and Atmos 136 Board. Was fun to get to know the kite a bit better in the bottom end of its windrange.

Even with the wind being under 15 knots there was enough hangtime and height to still do simple boardoffs and tricks. I can't wait to take it out in over 20 knots and have some real fun.

Enjoy

Great vid mate. I'm going to have to steal that board flip/spin. It looks mint.

Been out on a few sessions lately on the 9m Orbit. No idea why megaloops work so intuitively/perfectly, but heli-loops are off. It must be that I'm actively flying the kite when looping, so the turn initiation delay is much less. Flying rather than parking at 12 seems to work a bit better. More 30kn+ days required :)
