I think of it as kind of an aggressive snap 135(ish) degree turn very near the ground which you do not pull the kite out of, but instead let its downward momentum carry the tip into the ground. At least, I think I do, probably confusing
I'd recommend practicing on dry sand (or alternatively a waterlogged field
) if you can. Helps cushion the impact and the tip stays where you put it instead of skidding across the surface, particularly if you are not precise in the stab angle. You also get the added bonus of that neat flick up of sand when you take off again
, or you can get the kite to stand up on its own if you get a good stab in soggy grass.
