Kite Tricks

Flic Flac

Group 1


The Flic-Flac is a series of alternating flares and Fades. The kite begins the trick by flying straight down. The kite is flared (belly down, nose away), then pulled back into a Fade (belly up, nose toward the pilot). This sequence - flare plus Fade - must be performed at least three times. The ideal exit is to flare the kite halfway, stop with nose pointing straight down, and then fly out in that direction. (Note: In France, this trick is called a 'Pancake'.)
