All quad tricks with a photo?

Recommended Posts

Is there a list of all quad tricks with a diagram or pic of what the trick looks like? Or a description? or video?

Asking for a friend...

Granted it's a very old link but the tutorials are kinda timeless. Some of the videos have been there a while but they are probably still the best source for what you specifically asked.
They cover:
Traveling Bicycle
3D Flying
Flic Flac
Clockwork
Axel
Reverse Flying
Water Flying
as well as other basic and more advanced flying concepts.

 

Here's a preview of the flic flac video from Kitelife's Youtube page

A "falling leaf" is just an over extended and delayed Flik-Flak.  Step forward as you powerfully snap your thumbs down/reverse (at the kite).  Have the kite hovered (upright) and about 2/3rd of the window high to start.

The kite will fall over the back (the Flik part) with the down spar bottom tips passing over 180 degrees, stalled.  If you stepped forward and gave enough slack (like you can walk into it kind-of-slack) The kite will fall towards the ground.  If you did it straight down wind and perfectly even in your hands,....then it will fall straight down wind.

At the last possible second, you execute the "Flak" part and unwind it back to upright.  Step backwards to take out some slack (remember youv'e made acres of it!) and powerfully snap your thumbs up back towards your nose (Forward)

Either knock the hat off of an ant (just missing the ground) or stick that landing dramatically and call "out"

Slapping the water with a falling leaf is showing off
