When I first got into this kiting malarkey, I found it a bit difficult to get my head round all the possible tricks and how you were meant to start each one. Being a bit of a visual learner I decided to try to set them out in a kind of primitive flow chart. As time went on I added links to video trick tutorials that I had access to. I still find it quite useful and it serves as a sort of progress chart. I called it the ‘Trick Tree’.
It occurs to me that my rather feeble (and probably inaccurate) efforts could be improved on by the members of FA and that maybe we could, between us, produce a useful reference document for people new/newish to the sport.
I have run this past Andy, King of All Things FA, and he has suggested that there are two ways people might like to contribute to this process of improvement:
1 Directly editing the Trick Tree as a Google Doc here:

2 Making corrections/suggestions/contributions on this thread after viewing the gif which Andy has put up here:
Either would be very welcome!
I don’t want to be precious about either the content or format of the Tree – I will be happy as long as it ends up being as practically useful as possible.
For what its worth, my early thoughts are that I think that it might be cool if, not only did the Trick Tree show the main (easiest?) way to enter each trick and how each trick flows from another but also that each trick had a brief description, a link to Wiki and html links to videos available on line (or via Trick or Treat etc).
Anyway, enough waffle from me, over to you for help please…….
Keep it in the air.....
