Foil kite jumping techniques

Postby dsundaram » Fri Sep 25, 2020 2:03 am

Hi folks, I have two Flysurfer Soul's and I love them. Jumping though takes very different technique. Going up is pretty easy but I am getting pretty confused how to come down softly and ride away. Any of you have tips for jumping with foil kites? I read the tips from 2017 but I would love more current feedback given the advancement in the new freeride foil kites like the Soul.

souls are pretty soft on landings.. there are only 2 things you can get wrong not to ride away:
- choke the kite (either trim it or let the bar out a bit while descending)
- not redirecting kite fast enough..
