A move which is well within your reach if you can rotate forwards under a kite, yet a move which can appear so utterly incomprehensible and/or terrifying. Seemingly defying physics, trying to pop up whilst throwing yourself down into a front rotation. The mind boggles, and the body hesitates. Well, fear not; we’re going to have a look at how to learn this. It’ll still be very much popped, but you’ll have some support from the kite, a touch more time to rotate and, therefore, room to learn and improve along the way. Once you get the initial rotation down and the confidence that follows, you’ll have ample opportunity to be more dynamic, pop even harder and maybe even lower your kite just a tad. As well as being a brilliant trick on its own, there’s the added carrot in the fact that the popped front roll is a springboard into so many other tricks, whether transitions, unhooked moves, blind or wrapped landings, and so much more.
