In the POV shots, I noticed that (a) DD/Finger isn't engaged and (b) leash is clipped to chicken loop. I know that the leash to chicken loop is used in unhooked riding, but I haven't seen it from big air riders. Is this a setup that a lot of the pros use? Seems like the kite could unhook pretty easily on these big airs without the finger engaged.

I noticed the same. That's just stupid and incredibly dangerous.
