Insane - World Lowest MegaLoop

Postby a99 » Thu Nov 25, 2021 1:53 pm

Definitely it is world lowest megaloop.

Looks unreal, and kite goes just probably one meter from water surface!!!

This guy Jason van der Spuy must be REAL KOTA King of the year 2021! It is much more spectacular and dangerous trick than all rotations or boardoffs of Kota riders.

I give to him 10.00 score:) Please show this video to Kota judges:)!!! And ask what score they will give, probably 5.20 :)?

The lines are so short it would never be interesting to see in a comp like KOTA he would really be a 1 trick pony which get boring very quick

Good grief, those are nervy. If his kite had hit the water gravity would have hurt.

I'm not complaining, but one day one of those will go wrong and cause some serious injury.

Of course kitesurfing at that level is somewhat risky regardless, but even if I love watching these loops I wish they had focused on developing different kind of tricks.

Disagree.

Like riding giants or massive strapless grabless airs in real waves, this is a pure display of nerve and skill.

Respect to those that dare.

So far I think the guys have been lucky.
Fingers crossed we will never hear anything that went wrong…but from personal experience I can only say everything can break or become loose…
