Pilot #5: Comete

The 5th round of ‘PILOT’ features Bram, AndrĂ©, Ronald, Lucas and Lars who all perform the Comete trick at the Zandmotor beach. See description and how to vote below:


The COMETE is a tumbling trick in which the kite rotates in a single direction (clockwise or counter-clockwise). In each rotation, the kite passes through roughly four positions: in a clockwise rotation the Comete starts with a Half Axel which flares the kite belly down, nose away. Followed by a pop causing the nose pointing down and slightly to one side. The next pull brings the kite into almost a turtle position (belly up, nose away). The last pull turns the nose pointing right. This series of four positions constitutes one rotation.

Wind: moderate/3bft
