There is a good post on the kiteboarder.co.uk technique forum where someone asked about when you should sheet the bar in when loading up for a jump. I thought this was a good and interesting question as you see so many people out kiting who have terrible jumping technique – they might get out of the water but they are not getting anywhere near as much height as they could if they just adapted their technique a little.
Anyway, I created this short video, just a couple of clips, where Karine shows perfectly how the bar should be sheeting in during a jump:
These clips come from the Intermediate Volume 1 Collection which has an in-depth video on both Jumping & Popping. If you want to learn more then you can watch the full Introduction video which will outline everything included in this extensive instructional series, including lightwind technique, riding toeside and how to tune your kite, along with many other tricks and techniques.
