Whats the most stylish trick?? in your opinion

Post by mattllew »

Not a lot going on news wise so I'm gonna start a new thread....

What's the most stylish/nicest trick in your opinion?!?!

Ive given it some thought and I have to say either a 313 or a nice flat 3 with a grab.

and i picked those 2 because they can be appreciated by anyone and are not completely over the top, impossible to tell what is going on handlepass tricks.

Haha yeah a fair point..... they are both just handle pass tricks which arent done inverted (upside down). the 313 involves doing a railey before the handlepass. both are done with the kite low.

but thats the point.... if you've watched a vid lately then its likely you will have seen these tricks! however its possible they dont impress you enough to find out what they are and that a big ol' double front loop is more impressive. thats why its interesting for me to find out what peoples fav. tricks are (either that they can do or just watch).

This sorta thread has been done on an international forum.... but not really on this one unless i missed it.

flat 3 = flat 360 with handle pass

5 = 540º rotation
7 = 720º rotation
9 = 900º rotation - double 360 to switched (another 180)
1080 = triple 360

313 = Backside Raley with 360 rotation and handle pass

Have to agree with lew on this thread:

"downloop whirly bird to blind", is an awesome looking trick, if you ever get lucky enough to see someone do it! ;)

It's an Indy glide - one of the the easiest tricks but looks stylish.

My fav is one handed back kiteloop with an Indy and then 3 (that's my next project).

Off a kicker? thats cheap air. Try it off flat water :lol:

As for the most stylish move, its got to be a tidy low level Slim chance, a la Waiman.
