Two-Point Landing

a.k.a. Basic Landing



TP-USA Tricks Party Definition

The TWO-POINT LANDING is a landing on both wingtips at the same time. It is initiated with a STALL as close to the ground as possible, such that the kite does not hover or float down to the ground. The angle of approach does not matter. The kite must land on only the two wingtip points (not wingtips and spine, or the entire back of the sail). The kite must remain on its wingtips for at least two seconds before being relaunched.
KEY ELEMENTS: ►Decisive landing on both wingtips simultaneously. ►Held in this position on the ground for minimum 2 seconds.
