Ladder, Fly Through, Back’n’Forth

Hey, what does all this mumbo jumbo mean? Ladder? Fly Through? Back'n'Forth?

Anders has been busy lately. I guess he is as exited as I am just days before the Nordic Kite Meeting. One of the tasks on his agenda prior to the meeting is preparing a brand new team routine based on well known elements from previous routines. A few days ago the new routine was completed and all team members are now in the middle of memorising it.

Like said above, many elements in this new routine are based on stuff we’ve done previously and when we get this routine together, I think it’s gonna look pretty darn cool!

Talking about elements, there are eighteen of them in this new routine of ours and they all have their own names, of which Ladder, Fly Through and Back’n’Forth are three of them. And in this post I define an element like this:

An element is a sequence of a specified number of kites flying a specified pattern in the air.The element has a clearly defined start and end.

Each element can be flown separately, thus making repetitions easy. You can fly an element over and over and over again until you get it right and it slowly becomes muscle memory.

With uniquely named elements, commands will be easier to do (and understand) too. When practising the elements, commanding can be practised (and streamlined) simultaneously.

So when we get together again in a few days time, our goal is to practice the new routine for three days before we do the display at the Danish Kite Association’s festival on September 4th and 5th.

This is gonna be fun!
