Kite Tricks

Wap Do Wap

Group 3


The Wap Do Wap is a single 360° or 540° rotation initiated from an overrotated flare. The kite is flared 360° on the pitch axis so that the belly is up and the nose points toward the pilot but the lines are now underneath the kite (almost in a Yo-Yo). Before fully entering the YO-YO, the kite is spun either 360° or 540°. The kite should exit the trick vertically - nose-down for a 360° rotation, nose-up for a 540° rotation.

Key Elements

Note: my animation shows the kite exiting horizontally. This is still a Wap Do Wap, but not one that would score well in Tricks Party.
