I gotta' admit, as my body gets less resilient, that starts looking like more fun than wakestyle ect... I just don't have the knees I used to.

If you want to do some of those long hang-time no-hand board offs, you're going to need to dig up your pre-2008 North bar and figure out where the hell you stashed the micro loop after you took it off the bar because you almost died a few times when you accidentally hooked into it while throwing some tricks while fully powered on your old-school C kite. After watching the video, I'm all stoked to try some behind the 2nd island at Sherman this weekend.. if only I could remember where the hell I stashed my micro loops !$*(

I remember trying fearlu's 12m Vegas at alameda sometime pre-2008 and found myself in the micro loop a couple times and thought "this is crazy!" oo**

ya, I was going to mention the micro loop. I have have a few old-school fix loops that you can add to any control bar and they are much bigger then those North micro loops. I don't use them anymore if anyone is interested.

While we're on Memory Lane, my first SS bar had a chicken loop with no quick release...talk about crazy.
