Kite jumping


I am trying to learn to kite jump but I can't find any good videos or posts on the Internet. Any help will be good and I have tried to use the thing on google pages but that doesn't work. Hopefully you guys can help me learn to jump.

a quick google of "pendulum jump power kite"

leads right to this forum=>
http://www.powerkiteforum.com/viewthread.php?tid=10758

which contains this nugget:
https://sites.google.com/site/chrismwhittaker/pendulumjump

Which helped me get the basics down after about 8 months of flying. I'm at my one year anniversary now and I have a question.

It has to do with keeping tension on the lines all the way back to the ground. you see I feel good sending the kite back across the window and pulling in on the bar to get some lift as it heads up to the zenith. spotting the landing usually goes alright too now.

but after I land, sometimes I seem to have swung in under the kite and the lines are slack sending it floating down into the window again.

so how does one counter down wind drift and a post landing luff while jumping?
