Trying my first big(ish) kiteloops at over 40

Hey dudes,

Finally grew a big enough pair to try some decent height kite loops. A few of these were at 7 or 8 meters (according to Woo) and I can't wait to get conditions where I can try them again!

Take a look if you've got a minute free!

Cheers,

Nick

Learning to loop at 40 sucks.

It also gets a lot worse when you start going bigger and trying to get the kite lower. The crashes happen at speed and hurt. Good luck.

Good going, Nick. Stay safe. I'm 65 and will never kite loop, having watched three guys nearly die doing it, all saved only because there were lots of other kiters and spectators around to rescue them, otherwise they would each have drowned.
