FYI, Yuri, the wind was NOT smooth while I was out (2:30-3:30ish), at least not for the last half hour. I got dropped at least 5 times when I boosted in gusts.

However, it was obviously much smoother when you and Charlie were out there. :evil:

So that was you pulling the backroll kiteloops in 35 mph?

Wacko!

I've seen you do kiteloops. They arent pretty, in a pretty kind of way. :)

Yeah, especially yesterday I'm sure it wasn't pretty at all. I think I bounced off the water on my arse and back a few times on landings, but how can I improve the form if I can't see what it is in the first place?

I wasn't doing any backroll kiteloops. The only kiteloop I did yesterday was unintentional when my microloop locked in on my way down out of a jump.

I got pictures of Yuri and Chris both pretty close to the beach. I tried to load them on here last night but it was taking too long. PM your emails and I'll email them to you guys. I think I got a picture of each of you kitelooping, although I'm not sure you can telll that from the photos.
