description

execution

This launch starts out like the French Toast but has a different exit. From the Pancaked position give both lines a hard and even pull, followed very quickly by a big release, probably involving stepping forward. The kite will pop up nose down, roll onto its back nose towards the flyer (like a Flic-Flac) but the extra release will allow the nose to rise, showing the back of the kite slightly. Now pull the left line slightly back and hold it. The kite will pop horizontally into the wind, nose to the left and with the back of the sail towards the flyer. Pull quickly on both lines to reverse this (nose to the right, sail right way around) and fly off. This launch needs very fast hands and is best performed with kites that perform turtle-Flic-Flac type moves well.
