Been trying that channeling thing too. Guy named Crash McDoogle keeps showing up!! Flew my foil in 20 plus yesterday. Used the wrist wrap with heavy gloves, Switched back to finger hold real quick to keep from kissing the earth. Winds calmed down a bit and flew the Nighthawk still using the 4 finger hold.Kite would shutter pretty hard coming thru the window so I was right on edge. Iv'e always tried to keep my hands vertical. When doing lighter inputs is it best vertical or horizontal ? Horizontal in the power zone seems less control so Iv'e never tried unless with a bar and foil.
More lever work with your wrists.
I do a lot of fluid rolls with my hands during pitch tricks, bending the wrist up or down to shift the point and amount of tension. Tip stands for example, I bend my wrists down alternately to keep balance on the tip.
