Thanks, here is the first ever Wing Back Flip on tape:
(with less bla bla)



Also looks pretty much less impossible on this video, but enough else to learn before. Would recommend to try unhooked backflips first on the kite. For sure still quite distanced but closesed trick I think. As there are quite many links inbetween unhooked kite foiling and winging in my impression, doing quite a lot both last year.

Good point, so I edited the subject.

We’ve talked to Kai several times and he’s a great guy to talk to and friendly. He just won the Red Bull big wave overall performance award -

In my nightmare I am forced to watch hours of slow motion footage set to a highly dramatic, hero, finale style stock music selection.
OK, I lasted 3 seconds.
