Crosswind takeoff "how-to" video

I saw a question about Crosswind takeoffs on IFFG and thought I’d see if I could come up with a video showing how I do them.

Hope you like it!

Not bad.
But you were extremely heavy, you were climbing too steeply and also loosing speed on initial climb.

I’ve done the crosswind Takeoff multiple times in the SoCal region.

Now I know how to take off with a crosswind. Can you make one for crosswind landings?
Thanks!

Wow thanks for this, i did a crosswind takeoff on advance and i crashed, that was pretty embarrassing.

I suggest keeping 2-3 degrees forward pressure on the nose wheel to keep it going straight until rotate speed.
