K2000

Definition:

The K2000 starts with a landing to position the kite on its leading edge with the back facing the pilot and the lines coming up over the lower spreaders and trailing edge. From the initial landing, the lower wing is pulled to launch the kite into a LAZY SUSAN, belly up rotation and the wingtips are pulled down into a TWO-POINT landing. The initial landing is an integral part of this trick, and the time between landing and initiation of the rotation should be minimal.

Key elements:

Clean landing on the leading edge for the entry. Clean launch and rotation. Held in two-point landing for minimum two seconds

Judges view:

Same as the key elements, IN and OUT are free. The back of the kite may not touch the ground.

Most common errors:

Very bad landing (the kite balances on the nose), no firm two-points-landing.
