From Kiteloops to Megaloops

NEWS

Kiteloops are a complete turn of the kite on itself. You need to work out very hard to do a great kiteloop and you need to work much more harder to do a megaloop. But: No pain, no gain!

At the RedBull Megaloop Challenge, the craziest kiteboarders try their best for the biggest loops. At this event we do not talk about normal kiteloops but rather about full powered loops in 20m height. Of course, with such big moves, come even bigger crashes. But these extreme kiteboarders don’t really think about it in advance.

 

You want to accomplish megaloops on your own? This guide will tell you how to do it. However, before we can get into megaloops let’s start with the more simple kiteloops:

 

1. CHECK YOUR SKILLS

You should be able to have a very good kite control and manage a high jump. Jumping high is the foundation for nearly every trick.

 

2. JUMPING HIGH

Start with an moderate high jump. Try to launch your kite to the zenith and shift your hand back towards the end of the bar. Therefore the kite can rotate faster.

 

3. TRY TO LOOP

If you have reached the peak of your jump, you have to pull your back hand while pushing your front hand. Watch out: Do not stop the rotation halfway. If you do, you will definitely hurt yourself! So do not stop pulling the bar until you finished the loop completely.

 

4. TRY STEP 3 AGAIN!

 

5. RE-POWER YOUR KITE

When you have completed your loop, push away your bar slightly, so the kite can re-power and reach the zenith quicker.

 

6. THE LANDING

As soon as the kite is powered to the zenith, move your backhand back to the centre of the bar and respond to land. For a smooth landing, place the board as downwind as possible.

 

No pain – no gain!

 

Start with small kiteloops for a better mastery. The more you try, the more you will manage the kiteloop and once you feel comfortable with it, you can try to make bigger and bigger loops until you reach the level to call it finally a megaloop!
