Gie. They are fairly easy man and it feels great to just dangle upside down for a few seconds.
A few tips before you leave:
1.) Take off correctly. Dont' over fly the kite to get maximum height, just send it to 12 and pop off the water. This is so you can let go of the bar and the kite will not have to be redirected.
2.) Notice in the first dead-man pic the stopper I have is about half way down the center line. This helps not only keep my hangtime lasting longer, but also for the recovery it's easier to grab the bar again.
3.) Try, try, try and try again. It's not a move you have to fully commit to and the crashes aren't harsh so you should pick up on this pretty good even though you have the best crashes I've ever seen in person
. Start with just sending your board all the way into your lines. and hold on to your bar. EXTEND out and look at the water beneath. Land those a few times and letting go of the bar will be a breeze.
