Learning To Fly

Postby Knoted4ever » Fri, Jan 12 2007, 06:19 PM

Here is one of the new tricks that i'll soon be trying this year (recently licked the "Flic Flac to 540"):


Asteroid


1. Half Backspin from a Fade.
2. Keep some tension on the active hand to stop the kite half way around (in the nosebone position).
3. Then pop back with the same hand to send the kite into a manic Multi-Backspin.






excerpt from Pink Floyd - "Learning To Fly" Lyrics:



Into the distance, a ribbon of black
Stretched to the point of no turning back
A flight of fancy on a windswept field
Standing alone my senses reeled
A fatal attraction is holding me fast,
How can I escape this irresistible grasp?

Can't keep my eyes from the circling sky
Tongue-tied and twisted, just an earth-bound misfit, i

Ice is forming on the tips of my wings
Unheeded warnings, I thought I thought of everything
No navigator to guide my way home
Unladened, empty and turned to stone
A soul in tension that's learning to fly
Condition grounded but determined to try

Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted, just an earth-bound misfit, i
