Post by: Kareloh on September 11, 2012, 02:33 PM
Mat can do them!
Came across this video on FB.
Also nice to see how he does the 2 hands Multilazies.
Kite: Slash

Those are some of the nicest multilazies I have seen yet I like how nice and flat they stay.  IMO the cynique is just ugly no matter how well its done.  NIce flying though.

That was totally sweet - thanks for sharing it.

I now see the problem with my cynique - I need to take off BOTH my Tilley and my shirt!  :)

I'll try it tomorrow - although it is starting to get cold here in the Pacific Northwest.

Oh yeah - the kite has eyes, so I am interested!  :)

So forgive my ignorance please......just what exactly is the defintion of the cynique? I can't seem to find it on anyone's tutorials. (I admit not having looked too far, but that's why I look to youse guys for  ;) )

thanks,
Jim

Alternating lazy-susan rotations but without a visible pause. Can't wait for the backflip to settle and then do a rotation.

Better have some spare Lower Spreaders when first learning Cynique's :)

Okay thanks!  I probably would have called it a lazy cascade, but I understand there are purists that would have nothing to do with that name.......Extra lower spreaders.....yes, make sense to me.

HMMM ... have never try tried to master this trick ... notice how each change in direction is NEVER near 12'oclock, more like 2 and 10'oclock ... easier to go the other way at these change in direction end points ... as is suggested.
