A Resource of Kite Surfing Tricks & Tips

KGB

Don’t ask me where the name comes from… I can’t see any similarity between KGB and the russian intelligence, but whatever, here is the guide to perform the trick =)

  1. Come into the trick like you would do for an unhooked backroll. Unhook, edge hard and pop out of the water.
  2. Look over your front shoulder and go into a backroll rotation. When just over 1/2 way through your rotation throw your head in the other direction over your back shoulder and pull your hands hard to your front tip.
  3. Pass the bar from your front hand to your front hip.
  4. Once you grab the bar, reach around with your other hand and get them both on the bar.
  5. Spot your landing, bend your knees and ride away.

Tips! When unhooking always keep your elbows bent, this helps you keep a good edge. Try not to lean forward when you unhook. Keep your hands in the middle of the bar. Don’t throw the backroll to hard, it makes it hard to change direction.
