I slammed so hard trying this for the first time the other day. No idea where I went wrong.. I might have been too late.. I expected a smooth heli loop but instead got yanked forward so hard 😅

Great video, did some of my first backloops yesterday around 10-15 ft, can't wait to go higher.

Great video, been working on downloop tranisions and this stuff was the stuff i wanted to try on my next sesh!

Very nice and compact video that covers it all! Only thing I'd add: It was very helpful for me to learn a transition jump first. The backloops pull you quite a bit against your jumping direction so you might get turned sideways and land with a mean backedge :P

Cheers Sam, it worked! In one session I went from water starts to jump transitions with loops. Struggled on the kite loop on the dark slide - any suggestions, perhaps a vid?

Hi Sam, great videos this one fantastic too. The toilet seat position thing was never on my radar, after watching this video weeks ago, I started to focus to bring my body into this position and wow.. my confidence in looping exploded and my height with it, never felt this safe looping. 🙏 🤙👍😃

Hey Sam. Great video! I have a question. I was looping my 10m pivot recently like a maniac. Not too big loops more like 5m high on my pivot in 20-25knots. It was going great i was landing downwind everytime with lot of speed. Until last Monday i looped it and somehow got thrown off axis. I was flying sideways very hard towards water and i crashed hard too it all to my ribs. Luckily i had impact vest but the ribs even not broken are still badly bruised. While im healing im wondering what happened and how to prevent it in the future. I want to keep looping but i cant be pulled off axis like this again cos im scared ill break myself more. Suggestions?
I am trying to have good upwind takeoff not go too high yet. Im trying to tense up abs. Maybe that loop was a bit sloppy but until i pulled it it felt okay. How to prevent loosing stability at all cost?

Hi Sam,
I see you ride the Refraction 147 with straps, does that wakestyle board handle the chop well ?
I really like big board, have a Jaime love it on flat water but the medium rocker makes it quite hard in the chop

I am on my Slingshot B3, I always thought you're not supposed to get the lines twisted, ha, I learned something from this video!

You make that look so easy. Any chance of a video to help someone do their first heli looping? Just can’t seem to go for it.

Does line lenght matter while learning? I always ride 24m lines

here just a quick question, whats the best time for trying your first kiteloop in terms of kitesurfing level, like I know most tricks don't translate but what stuff should you have down before trying one. Cheers
