How To HELI LOOP / DOWNLOOP / LANDING LOOP FOR BIG JUMPS BIG AIR Kitesurfing | Get High with Mike
A heli loop, downloop or landing loop, is the loop you throw before landing a massive jump! You need to use one of these if you’re coming down from big heights, because generating enough lift at the right time becomes increasingly difficult with higher jumps. This is the maneuver that encouraged me to start coaching. Let me know what you think or drop questions in the comments! N’yeowww!
