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".

There was a move in one of the Lam's video(the one in Wasaga Beach 2005) that looks like Flic Flac but the kite flip all the way back & then back to Fade. He did it multiple times. The trick looks very cool. I think it is way better looking that the regular Flic Flac. What is it ? What is the correct name for it ? You can find the trick on the 23 seconds in the beginning of the video.

It's just an overdone FlicFlac. For some kites that are a bit fussy about rolling back and forth (Cosmic TC... I am looking at you) it's a more reliable way to FF.

I think it is way better looking that the regular Flic Flac.
Each to their own.

Mike is correct, It is an over-rotated flick-flack, looks real cool.
