Is Tom Bridge actually doing handle passes after a powered kite loop?? 😱😱
I spotted that too. He is trowing a big kiteloop followed by a handlepass (at 27 seconds) Very impressive skills :thumb:
His vid stood out the most for me also. Landing megaloops blind :o

Tom was flown in last minute in 2018 to cover when Aurlien was injured a few days before. He tried to go for a megaloop kGB in his heat right at the end, you could see him loop and unhook but he pulled back at the last minute. I think he could land it in Cape Town like Aaron Hadlow has.

He has an inexplicable knack of being able to land blind from just about any trick at any height, including surface and handle passes in there, with a lazy megaloop with rotation chucked in for good measure. Amazing. I'd say if he just joined north then yeh..he will be in the king of the air for reasons we don't need to spell out but know to be true. Can't wait to see how he goes.

:thumb: Very nice video from Marc Jacobs... a man with all the tricks, surely he too could land a magaloop KGB!

Is he riding a North Orbit ?

Yup.

He can do a bit more than what's in that video as well. Pretty incredible rider. Also annoying because whatever board off trick I'm doing/crashing, he then does double the height with a megaloop making it look super easy.
