What did you find were the challenges of learning the grabbed KGB for you?
You need to go high and big, you need to go into the trick fully powered. What helps me is thinking about what exactly I need to do on each step of the trick, come in with the kite low, edge properly, and manage to land.
When you were learning the KGB was there a breakthrough moment or something about this trick that everything clicked for you to begin to land the trick consistently?
Yes, with the KGB I found that edging harder and having the kite lower helped to be able to pass the bar smoothl
For people who would want to learn this trick, what building blocks do they need to learn first?
It’s quite a journey to land the KGB, first, you need to be able to unhook, then learn an Unhooked Backroll, then I would say learn a Raley to Blind, then Backroll to Blind, and from there Backroll to Blind Airpass where you pass the bar in the air before landing and from there you are ready to try the KGB.
And to get that last rotation the key is quite a lot more commitment and speed into the trick?
Yes for sure! Going step by step and trick by trick is the easiest way to learn this trick properly to land it all the time.
