Once you learn how to ride toeside and learn how to backroll the next step is to backroll to toeside. This is a super fun trick that requires a little more skill. There are a couple of key points that make learning this trick easier. We’ll break this down into kite position, body position and board position.
You’ll want a little more height for a backroll to toeside than a simple backroll. Create a little more tension between you and the kite before you pop. Maintain your edge and bar tension when sending the kite to 12 o’clock. Pull in and pop with the kite at 12 o’clock. Once you complete your rotation to toeside, steer the kite back in front of you.
You do not need to over-send the kite to create more lift. Create more lift by balancing bar tension and controlling your pop.
Maintain a tucked position. Keep your legs tucked in even when you come around from your backroll rotation. You’ll want to bring your back foot forward and point downwind. Land flat with weight slightly over your new backfoot.
One key point is using your head to control your rotation. Look over your front shoulder and commit to the rotation. Once you complete your rotation, spot your landing and focus on pointing downwind.
Board position and body position go hand in hand. The key point for the board is to point the back of the board straight downwind. Knowing how to ride toeside will help with this trick.
You do not need to over-rotate. It is more difficult to balance over the board if you point the back of the board further into the wind.
