Very pretty, but I have a problem with the name:

I'm already using "the Goff" to describe the straight line 45 degree leaning back position the flier adopts when the kite has more pull than your weight can handle, thus you can have a full Goff, a partial Goff and if things are getting stupid you can be over Goffed!
Love Veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Needs to fly more, now that I can.

Yeah...maybe...but your description (I have never heared of) describes a Pilot position !
I use "Goff" for a kite trick in kitefreestyle...but I do not know, that Chris has a different name for it...well he did mention a name...just seen him doing it a couple of times while trying out my kite...I hope that Chris writes something about it...I did the vid, because I have never seen it before anywhere on a Vid or before Chris had done it...I am not even sure, that he has done this trick before Stella...we`ll see :wink:

I can't do this trick ... not that I'd ever tried ... then again - I never will try ... because its lame.

Its like a reverse like a "lifter" ... and thats lame too.
