Barrel Roll


A barrel roll is a half backspin, though the spin is characteristically unflat. The trick is initiated from a fade. Since the revolution will only be half, the set up of the kite is not as critical as it is for full- and multi- backspins. However, it is easier to be pulling the wing which is lower in the fade. So, from being in the nose-towards, belly up position (fade): pull one wing fairly gently and give a little slack to the other and the kite will roll over to be nose-towards, belly down - and naturally pulls up into normal flying position from there.

Since the barrel roll ends with the nose tipped towards the flyer, it is a very useful trick for initiating yoyo?s, or for getting into a very deep turtle.
