What you reckon Toby, a worthy Airstyle successor of yours? :D

Yeah, looks awesome!

I don’t do that many rotations…my kite is too fast.
Guess one day I need a foil…

If he doesn’t add a Microloop many tricks he won’t be able to pull though…

Always happy to see other riders pushing it, also the Megaloop part of Airstyle, since I won’t do it.

More to come ! 🥳

Not sure why you wouldn't use a foil - it seems like the obvious choice for airstyle. So much float.

It's a ... foil !

For me the launch is scary...and the hassle if something goes wrong. Plus I have been in a shitty situation...where a tube saved my life...

I remember many years ago, seeing you on a foil kite:

its this one out of 50 session of foil kite that goes wrong and you decide to sacrifice foil kite hang time and lofty jump for LEI reliability, predictability etc,.

so far I progress every session...LEI can't be that bad !

Like I said...if I won't progress anymore with my gear, I need to rethink...and then a foil is pretty much likely.
Still wondering if a big Aluula kite can be a real competitor for it...

Yes, Volare was fun. But I had someone starting the kite for me...didn't like to do myself ;-)

Anyway, it's good that the market offers something for everyone. Although my options are getting fewer and fewer...
