Flapjack

Definition:

The FLAPJACK is a LAZY SUSAN performed directly from a ground launch and ending in a TWO-POINT LANDING. The kite is launched from its wingtips directly into a BACKFLIP (belly up, nose away), immediately followed by a LAZY SUSAN and brought back down into a TWO-POINT LANDING.

Key elements:

Rotation close to the ground. Clear two-point landing. The Backflip is immediatly after the launch.

Judges view:

The kite should be on its back directly after launch, not when its 1 meter (or higher) of the ground. No pause between the backflip and the rotation. The rotation should be flat. Very firm two-point-landing!

Most common errors:

Launching kite too high, soft landing, running forward to get the kite to land. Uneven rotation.
