*TIPS AND TRICKS*
Last month we gave you some tips on how to learn your first jumps and now we are going to elaborate some of the most common mistakes we see and why you might not be jumping as high as you wished.
4 common mistakes when learning to jump:
1. You don't get enough speed. It's scary, we know, but if you don't go fast enough you won't get enough power to jump.
2. You don't edge enough. It goes hand in hand with mistake #1 , you need to build up tension in the lines for the kite to pull you out of the water
3. You don't fly the kite quickly enough or you don't pull the bar enough. The kite needs this extra boost to pull you up.
4. You push off with your legs rather than using the power of your kite. No matter how strong your legs are, you will never be able to jump up high this way.
Now off to you - what is the thing you struggle the most with when jumping, or what was it that you struggled with most when first learning to jump?
