Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Ricardo showed me this...kite is the Crow "Senior" STD+

How it kinda works:
Go into a Backspinn...do the first one normal...when it comes to the next one, then hit it harder and shorter, following the next inputs as fast as you can...its like 2 inputs for one Backspinn...you will find the spot...after, get it to calm down and go out...do not forget the slack with the other hand...it works with kites that are able to do Barrels best...try and have fun  Smiley

At 00:02:49, Miguel, is doing it too  =D>

Interesting but it almost looks like an old school flat barrel roll since the nose stays forward.  Can you post a slow speed version of the vid so I can see whats happening better with the kite itself? If I understand it right the shorter double pop keeps the nose from going away and staying nose forward or nose down.w  Is off hand slack still the same as a normal back spin?
