With most any delta sport kite that is laying on a leading
edge, if you give a tug on the wing in the air the kite will
normally rock over to put the other leading edge on the ground.
The delta kites that have a long enough bridle assembly, (one
which allows the pick point to extend beyond the leading edge
when held off to the side of the kite) can actually be tugged
sharply enough to cause the wingtip in the air to rotate far
enough to pass beneath the flylines and allow the kite to be
quickly stood up on its wing tips. (Alla! miguel rodregez).
(Note: this stunt usually requires that the kite be equiped
with whiskers/sail stabilizers)
