"Can Sea Devil stand. do INSANE trick??"

Not without some help from the pilot.


But seriously, that was one of Lam's big deal tricks ten years ago in the Master Control era, so I gotta assume he'd like to do it on newer kites too.

I still did't in class for that lnsane-leson.

I have to learn first comete.
Hope SD stand will help me to learn comete well and hope It can do it easy...
 Comete looks very complicate but on the other side pilote moves are similar in move and not to complicate but kite is flying like ....like ........just like comete....
 Huh Huh Huh

Learn tricks in any order you want, but the comete is far more difficult trick to master than the insane.  In high winds, the insane is pretty much a no-brainer on most kites.

Is there a stunt kite that doesn't??

Seriously, this trick is so easy that if you don't cascade it, it's like almost not a trick.  I would go so far as to say it's almost not a slack line trick even, because one line is tight through the whole maneuver.

You would be far better off in the long run practicing holding a fade for minutes, or getting a good half axel.  Once you have the half axel looking tight, you'll probably revisit the insane long enough to realize it's easy...and then move on to the jacob's ladder, etc.

Its a great trick for even extremely high wind.   The easiest way is to fly straight up and then do a snap-lazy and hold tension on the non-slack line - it will quickly fall in and start to rotate.

I like it - cascading them and doing reversing insanes (not all kites like to do this one) or an insane-to half-lazy to fade is fun.  Or, do a cascade, into an insane, back to a cascade, the combos are pretty flexible.

I agree with obi that being able to do a good half-axel is time better spent, but to each his own.  I learned the JL before I could do a decent half-axel and it all took much longer that way.  Then again, I was obsessed with learning the JL - so who knows, I would not have worked as often or as hard on the half-axel alone.

I would have to agree with the above posts, the Insane is so darn easy to do that pretty much any kite out there can do it.  You can probably do an insane on a beetle.  I would put money on it that the Sea Devil can do it no problem.  (haven't flown one myself)
