I'm fairly consistent getting my kite to fade from most positions including from a half lazy susan. But when trying to get the kite to barrel roll out of the fade to a turtle I'm struggling getting the kite to land on its back in a horizontal position. It tends to hit the backflip at nearly vertical and ends the Jacob ladder efforts. Maybe I'm just giving slack with both lines for the turtle too early? I lost my wind when practicing today but will get some more time later this week.
