Megaloop Mania

Oh boy was it a good day on 10-3-14!!! Sustaining winds of 35knots topping out at 45. The 7 meter was maxed out at some points so the only thing to do was lean back and boost BIG. Threw some megaloops in there and had a blast. We all had big exhausted smiles on our faces at the end of it. I've been craving a day like this all year and mother nature delivered!

Enjoy and let me know what you think :D

its one thing to mega loop but dramatically shorten the lines, throw in some closeout waves, 40 knots and hanging on to your gopro by your teeth 30+ foot up!!! and raaaaaaaspect shall be had! Saw his kite cycle well below his body as he was shot up into a back cracking railey with feet way over head to then shoot 40 yards off warp speed. Saw many impressive ones but nothing like that one in particular which didnt look any different than a len10 deal. Lots of challenging aspects of kiting for sure but that kinda move is what makes the sport what it is. Many good landings but that one bounced and cartwheeled from the speed which looked sketch but go pro still in mouth and back out for more. raising the bar!

Thanks G-man! Some were good, some bad, some landed, some didn't. All part of the learning game. I don't think I've ever been on such a rush after doing some of those. Drugs don't have anything compared to a big yanked Megaloop from 30+ feet up.

~2:15... Poor windsurfer... No heart attack I hope.
Did you hit that sail, or closely missed it?
Amazing, man!

Yeah, super close call, but didn't hit anything.
