Saw Mike while rigging, and wanted some "push" to try some things, so asked him if he was working on any tricks. He says he wants to loop. I say "Me too." We say "Let's go." We sailed together a bit, then lost each other. I did a warm-up catapult, and it felt good. I put on my helmet after closing the ear holes (at the recommendation of a local looper.) I sailed away, heart beating, throat dry, palms probably sweating...and the wind died. We waited till 2, then moved to Doug's. I saw Mike later in the week and it turns out he tried a loop that day, but bailed from the kit early on.
