Very aggressive kiteloop. Looks great. I'm a total fan.

On the other hand, the rider gets a bit too excited over his feat. Dude, don't just drop your kite when you do something spectacular. In the immortal words of Tom Court, "Stomp it.....and ride away". 8) :thumb: 8)

Pretty cool. Looks like he's using really short lines.

Due to those line lengths for some reason I get a flashback about F16 with 10m lines from around 2005-2008 😁

Joshua Emanuel has a video of loops like this on short lines from a recent session in Cape Town. Sorry I can’t get it to embed from YouTube, maybe someone else can.

Joshua is an animal! And a really good guy. Was first into the water to help when a guy crashed a mega-loop at Hermanus a couple years ago and would have drowned without help.

I think he was so happy he dropped the kite after. Great move, 100% landed and massive kiteloop :thumb:
