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".

Fade to pancake to fade to pancake .. is called flic-flac.

What about If I get the kite overrotating from the fade position? i.e. fade to backflip to fade to backflip.

The only way the kite is going to make this transition without passing through any other position or violating the Laws of Physics is with a Backspin-style rotation.

If you continue with a same-axis rotation past the Fade you're wrapping the kite, one way or another.

Sorry, my bad.  It is not a backflip.  I do not know what that position is called.  It is in a turtle position but with the nose pointing toward me instead of the wing tips.  So, when I overrotate my kite from the fade position, it will pass the pancake and get into that position.  It is much like the wap do wap without a spin.

That's still a fade position, though. It's just wrapped. Unless there's a specific name I don't know about.

Isn't this the same trick vertigo has been perfecting for a while? I think it was determined that it didn't have a name yet.

Yes it is, I just call it a 3/4 roll up and unroll, but everyone has multiple names for it.

There is no name, it's just a Wap Doo Wap without the rotation.
But, if you chain it, it's like a Flic Flac with a reversed Turtle (not easy to do).
Do you chain it or just make the first mouvement of the Wap Doo Wap ?

That is a Flip Flap (or Reversing Flic Flac).
