That looks like a very "floaty" kite, he is getting a bit of secondary lift on a few of those jumps..

I think his big advantage is that he hits ramps very very fast. This gives him a lot of height off the ramp which unloads the kite meaning that he can then fly the unloaded kite higher which then translates into a higher jump. IYSWIM.

Nahh, it's different than how his Pivots dropped him. Hard to say it's the kite vs. conditions but I've seen enough KL vids to say that kite appears to be giving him more hang time.

I agree, it looks like a floatier kite to me than the pivot.

Sick. interesting landing goofy, i guess it take aways some of the momentum when landing allowing a bit more float too.

Exactly and I see no difference with the pivot, that's how he lands his jumps for years

Looks interesting when comparing this jump from him on the pivot: with the one at 2.22 in the video with his prototype

Crazy loft he is getting. Definitely another level than the PIVOT!
