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.

Pretty cool Peter. It looks like the kite is swimming down the window.

So fly the kite up the window then put it belly away, nose up and alternate small left / right inputs? Kind of like an upside down riser?

Very cool. It looks like a semi interrupted insane L-R. Needs a locked in turtle deep kind of kite for that I suppose?

What kite is this in the video? The Le Organic?

I like to avoid tricks that look like the kite is broken and out of control.

Nothing really out of control about it!
I wonder what it would look like if the wind wasn't so high. Maybe at a slower wind speed it would look more controlled and deliberate Smiley

When the wind is lower, it looks like the second shot which is in slowmotion at first in the Vid...a friend of mine had goten his Cam that day and filmed the first time that day...I have very litle time and it is hard to get good wind, good Camera and a good cameramen at the same day...I just wanted to let other pilots know about that trick which has Chris Goff showed me at Stella this year  Smiley

This isn't really a new trick, but then again most trick aren't new.  You can usually get this position when trying to axel in winds at the high end of a kites range or with a lot of tail weight in lower winds.  I've done this a lot but always considered it a screwed up axel.  Alternate entry happens when you screw up on an over rotated flic flac and don't let it rotate far enough.

I usually just guide it down for a backwards 2 point landing into a fade launch, pull one side to roll it around into a turtle or add more slack and pull out to a fade or mid air pop up.  I've broken a few spreaders getting out of that position in higher winds so its not something I actively try to work with but more or less let the kite roll through it to a new position or landing.

If you like doing it by all means keep it in your trick bag.  Screwed up tricks can get some interesting variations,  JUst look at the wap do wap thats pulled out before it fully rolls up (can't think of the name for this thats being used)
