Dual line tricks - Rolls
Start in a fade, push one hand, pop the other, kite rolls
(more or less) around the spine.
A sequence of one or more Lateral rolls while flying down. Fly the
kite up and throw hands forward at 75 % to kill the kite onto it's
back. Now give a fast sharp tug on both lines, followed by a little
slack, to recover the kite up and pull the nose towards you and down
until pointing towards the ground. The back of the kite should be
facing you with the lines running down and coming under the leading
At the point when the nose drops down and makes contact with the lines
across the leading edge, give a firm and fairly steady pull on one
line. The force of the nose traveling down when contacting a now tight
line on which pressure is being applied, causes the free wing to continue
to travel away from you, inducing the kite to twist laterally and roll
around the spine. The kite should continue to fly downwards during
the twist and further rolls can be introduced by coaxing the lines
alternately in sync with the kites rotation.
Fly down, kill the kite out, pop into a fade with both hands
then continue to pull on one and slack the other. Kite goes straight up
into a fade and then rotates around the spine.
Slamming limey twist/Lime Wedge
This is a Limey twist performed close to the ground so that the nose
of the kite makes contact with the ground while twisting. The kite
continues to roll around the spine while in contact with the ground,
until it has spun around to land on it's tips.
