0:09 to start with, be confident with gear and conditions i.e. 20/25 knts, non gusty, with 9 m² wing for 80 kilos 0:14 15 knts and 12 m² can do the trick but landings could be heavy 0:16 30 knts and 7 m² are fine but wipeouts will be more "noticeable" 0:21 warmup is a good idea 0:24 because a big tumble at the beginning of your session could be a bit depressing :) 0:29 the harness MUST BE TIGHTLY FITTED, wet it before you put it on 0:35 you need LOTS OF ROOM in FRONT of you (no one coming from the other direction), BEHIND you and DOWNWIND (do not hit another fellow kiter, or even a windsurfer) 0:40 a friend not too far to say WOOOO or call the paramedics 0:45 ok, let's get started 0:55 trigg your kiteloop at the apex of the jump, after you've briefly put the kite back above your head (watch carefully the movement of the kite on the video) 1:01 by 3 combined actions, with your hands far apart on the bar 1:06 that make kitelooping safe 1:12 sheet in like Billy o, bar against chicken loop 1:16 pull hard on your back hand 1:23 push on your front hand 1:32 whatever happens, DO NOT RENOUNCE ONCE STARTED, keep pulling on your back hand 1:44 come on, sheet in, pull on your back hand, push on your front hand 1:49 the kite loops then goes back up: let it breathe by pushing on the bar this is the good moment, your kite drags you, you go horizontal without having anything else to do 1:58 place the board in the Wind direction when landing +++ would you land sideways after you jump a bump skiing? of course not :) 2:04 you'd rather land on your back or bum than badly landing on your feet (Watch your knees+++) 2:13 Dr Cool's reponsability will not be engaged in case of addiction
