Atb kite megaloop ( not a challenge, just curious)


I have been watching videos of kite boarders doing megaloop where the rider is above the kite. Has this ever been done on a land board. I was thinking of it being done and realized if you mess us you risk serious injury or worse. But it would be a cool thing to see. You would have to have so much space downwind and have a very fast kite. I only know of maybe 3 people, and only one by name that might be skilled enough to try it.

I don't think he's above the kite, but I just ran across this video and he's doing some pretty massive loops.

another way to do it would be to use shorter lines
