Indoorflying - Dual line Landings

Tail catch

This move requires a very well neutral balanced ultra-light kite. Land your kite on its tips, in front of you. Pull gently on the lines so that your kite falls slowly on its belly ; now, just before the nose touches the ground, pull evenly and quite strongly on both lines. The kite should pop in the air : at this moment, release the lines and step forward (one step is enough). Your kite will "reverse" and go down flat on its back, belly up and nose away from you. Just take both handles in your left hand : the kite will go down quietly towards you, and you should be able to catch its tail with your right hand. Nice, impressive, efficient, and quite easy :-)
