Dual line tricks - Landings
done just above the ground, followed by a landing is called a belly
landing. Of course any landing which puts the kite on it's belly is a
belly landing...but if the nose is pointing away from you, you can
recover from it.
Both wing tips hit the ground at the same time, usually performed
downwind in the center of the power zone. Point the nose straight down,
in a "power dive" towards the ground. Just in time to clear the ground,
initiate an exaggerated snap stall.
In a higher wind you must move forward to induce the landing.
