Great video!

Did I get that right?
The point that seems to be unclear in many beaches in capital letters:

1. go fast, kite normal position.

2. initial stear kite up from 10:30 to 12: hard and fast

3. while kite is flying up NO MORE STEARING (BAR STRAIGHT) and BAR DEPOWERD for very little Time. (PUSHED AWAY FROM BODY) so board can carve little upwind to create pop and to be able to keep holding the edge.

Just before take of bar is of course is powerd again.

4. while flying trough the air BAR IS FULLY POWERED ALL THE TIME.?

5. before landing kite is beeing steared forward again AND BAR IS STILL POWERED ALL THE TIME?
