Thanks Toby!

I need to do some serious editing on the clips and to find a willing victim that will volunteer to film me as currently, most of what I have is from my POV.

I'll definitely pull everything together soon and would value your opinions on how ugly my execution of the double rotation is :)

Hey Toby!

Thanks for taking the time to send such a detailed reply, you’re absolutely right. Hopefully, you didn’t take my last comment the wrong way, I was being genuine in terms of acknowledging your experience with different trick names. My next video (I think) will be about a double back roll where the first rotation is inverted and the second no and I finish the trick with a downloop to tell me ride away on landing. The description is a mouthful 😂😂 do you know if that trick has a shorter name?

Again, thanks for the feedback previously and for creating such an awesome place for viewing and sharing kite content.

Cheers, Nick

Hi Nick,

not that I know of.
But, I am sure it is a double rotation...not Backroll :D
They all write it wrong. I know, because many years ago I was in doubt too, and ask on the forum, and I was explained by english natives that a Backroll is more a real roll, where the board is a bit higher (like the first low rotation with a forward moving kite we all do in the beginning).
And rotation is where you use the kite to jump and rotate on the vertical axis.
Then going inverted is a a inverted rotation (front or back).

But, there is a Stiffy ! So Inverted got called Stiffy when you stretch yourself all the way.

What you describe I do as Front...and I call it Front 720 Stiffy Tail Grab Downloop with grabbing the Tail in this video.

Looking forward to see yours, since I found the Back rotation with Stiffy a bit tougher to make it look nice. A front rotation with Stiffy is more stylish.
But you might just go inverted without being stretched all the way.

So, post it and let me see ! :thumb:
