Want to learn 360...
I was missing my 360 all the time, had no idea what was wrong, then my wife filmed me… Ahhhhh , then I saw that I was initiating my turn much too early. All I had to do is to wait longer for the kite to be more “behind” me and then initiate my turn. That made it for me… it’s not the only thing to do, but for me it was the biggest error I was doing.

I also started with a 21m Lotus 4, sweet kite. Not the first kite most people think of when starting to hydrofoil but it worked for me in low wind, light breeze that was maybe 8 knots. It just hung up in the air and was slowly pulled me around and did not want to over power me.

Later I used the 15m Lotus 4 with a little more wind, I has some problems with going too fast but I was a little more experienced so could deal with it and it worked well.
