I certainly would not tell that brave young lady that she lacked commitment. I am not a megalooper but for me if I am going to throw a powered loop you are in for a wrestling match if you just rely on pulling on more tension. I find it less of a wrestle if I release tension on the opposite side as well. No idea if this is applicable in this case, I am just full of admiration for the exuberance, and hope she is not hurting.

PS She started the loop very early, probably when max tension and this may have given her too much horizontal acceleration but as already said I am only guessing! Cracking photo to have!

I think she was going for a board off megaloop but didn't get the pull on the bar right and the rest was history!
You are correct. She is doing a boardoff and for some reason does not pull enough with the bar hand to finish the loop. Not sure what that reason is, but it is a spectacular result!
