Hi... Sounds like you might be trying for a "

It might be a "yo yo", "roll up" or "two pop roll up", but it doesn't sound like you're trying to wrap the lines all the way around the kite.

There are a wealth of video tutorials and reference videos (as linked above) that will really help shorten your learning curve, and perhaps help define what you want to learn.

Ahhh... I've not flown a Salsa II myself, but I'm pretty sure it is a beginner kite.

Definitely experiment and have fun, you should be able to do the Axel, fade, turtle, stall, maybe a backspin... But, I don't think it's capable of the more advanced tricks.

Never know though, feel free to prove us wrong! ;)
