How to jump ??


Hi,

I would like to know how to jump with a PKD Joy 4.0mē.
I weight 125 Lbs and I am beginning in kite traction. The regular wind is 10-15 mph in my region.
I tryed the pendular movement but without a great success. The only jump I made was just by chance (I was lifted at 3 feet high and dragged 10 feet).

Does someone have a video explaining how to jump ?

Thx
:cool:

Sound like your trying to boost but you have your kite to deep in the wind window

In otherwords the faster and higher you get you foil the higher you'll go

the lower ,say 9 and 3 O'clock the further you'll go

Place your foil at 2-3 o'clock run

Try to get your foil in to the 12 and pull on the top lines ( left side) if your running to the right and versa-visa if your heading left (pull w/right side) once you lift pull with both

AND don't jump with the pull have as much force against the kite

This is a 4.9 blade III in 20 mph winds, I just swing the kite high across the window a few times, dig in on maybe the second sweep across the window, then on the third sweep, let the kite take you up. Swing kite round to more or less back above your head, and nice soft landing.

Think the main thing is as you feel the kite pulling, pull back on it until its picked up enough speed(power) to take you further off the floor! Otherwise you just do small jumps. The jump in this video is one my smaller ones, but I got the technique right on this one.
