description

The kite is made to hover or sit still.

execution

Fly the kite to the edge or overhead until it stops. After you stall your kite, you may find it hard to hold it stalled. Or you may find that it does not stay nose pointed up. Here is some advice to help you learn to work with a stalled kite. First when you stall a kite, the controls will sort of reverse. To raise a dropping wingtip, gently pull on the side that is dropping. This is counter intuitive since you pull on the opposite line than you would to turn the kite up. To help maintain a stall you need to keep tension off the lines. Walk slowly toward the kite to do this. If the kite starts to drop, then apply a very small amount of tension to the lines to bring it back up. You can also shake one or both hands, this works to keep the air behind the kite from flowing smoothly over the back and accelerating the kite.
