Turtle (Backflip)


The TURTLE (backflip) starts and ends with the kite-nose pointing up. The kite is flipped onto its back, floating in a belly-up, nose-away position. The kite must float in this position for at least two seconds, OUT is nose-up. No sliding sideways.

Key elements:

Clean nose-up entry and exit. Backflip held for minimum two seconds. Stability (no pronounced tilt or wobble). On the spot.

Judges view:

The initiation is in one move. Stability! Holding at the same spot.

Most common errors:

Laying the kite on its back in two steps. Movement of the kite. Sideways sliding.
