STATEMENT

My favorite trick!

BEFORE

Learn and control a downloop (once as a turn). When the downloop is released (during the downloop, the rider has to actively activate and trigger). Rotate forward in the air during the downloop (turn the head in the direction of rotation, after the trigger of the jump, the body follows).

EXPERT EXPERIENCE

You just have to trust yourself to put yourself in the forward rotation, then it’s a really great feeling.

CHALLENGE

The turning during the downloop pulls the rider to its length.

IMPORTANT ADVICE
  • when the Downloop is introduced you have to give preasure on the outline of your boardmust, otherwise the kite pulls the rider only to a downwind course, but not in the air.
  • the rotational direction of the kite is identical to the rotational direction of the Riders, therefore the kite “helps” to rotate.
  • The abdominal muscles must be tensed
