Re: [ksurfschool] question about riding and setting up a chicken loop
- Hi Tom!
I went from fixed loop to chicken loop a year ago and
I can tell you that it's normal that you find it
tricky in the beginning!
I always ride fully depowered while cruising and only
sheet in when I'm loosing speed (while edging too hard
upwind) or when I'm performing a jump. However I think
this depends a lot on your equipement... (I ride a
flysurfer foil which you can depower and power up a
lot). (Then you sheet in you slow down the kite so it
falls back in the powerzone and hence you got more
Once you get used to the way riding with the chicken
loop you'll love it. It's way more easier to go upwind
and adjust your speed! Hope this helps a little!

Hi, I wonder how people like to ride with the chicken
loop. I have mostly used my pulley bar and
am just starting to use my new slingshot chicken loop
I guess what I am driving at is this. Is the best way
to ride powered up and you sheet out when
you are hit with a gust, or is the best way to ride
depowered and you pull the bar towards you
when you want more power? Or do you kind of split the
difference? I am finding that the chicken
loop adds a 4th dimension to riding that is a bit
