01. They Loop Late
The later you loop, the more time you spend going up. Simple as that. But – and it’s a biggie – with every second that goes by, you are increasing the amount of line slack, because you are moving towards the kite. In order to counteract this:
02. They Send It Forwards
They redirect before looping. This re-engages the lines, putting tension back through them so that when they loop, they have dealt with the slack situation.
Why doesn’t everyone loop like this?
It is considered not-as-legit. An early loop will always provide more yank and therefore be more dangerous and more score-worthy. But, it is an excellent way of pushing the boundaries and squeezing in extra rotations.
