The frontroll is a little more difficult of a trick to learn than a backroll. Frontrolls require your body to rotate further than a backroll. The key point to remember when learning how to frontroll is to initiate the rotation with your head and shoulders.
Kite Position – You don’t need much height when doing a front roll, a couple feet is plenty high. Jump like you normally would by edging hard and sending the kite to 12. Don’t oversteer the kite and when you’re learning how to frontroll you don’t need to send the kite to the opposite side of the wind window. At the top of your jump and in the middle of your rotation, you’re going to want to direct the kite back in front of you. Keep both hands close to the center of the bar for better kite control, slower kite movement will help you to focus on the rotation of your body.
Body Position – The key point is to initiate the rotation with your head and shoulders. Really try to look over your back shoulder and push your shoulders in the direction you want to go. Don’t stop looking until you spot your landing, if you stop turning your head you’ll stop your rotation. Commit to the rotation until you spot your landing. To help quicken your rotation you can bend your front knee and keep your back leg straight. This will help spin you around quickly.
Don’t oversteer your kite, keeping your hands close together will help with your kite control. Commit to the rotation by looking over your back shoulder. Don’t stop looking until you spot your landing.
Once you understand that your head controls your rotation, you can start adding variations to the front roll. Like these:
