HI EVERYBODY
I THINK THAT TOMAS MEANS THAT HIS KITE BECAUSE OF GUST, DURING RELAUNCH IN THE MIDLLE OF THE POWERZONE (STRAIGHT DOWNWIND OF HIM) FLIES FOR A WHILE, IN "U" POSITION ABOUT 1 METRE ABOVE THE SEA. AFTER THAT HIS KITE INVERTES AND TANGLES THE LINES.THEN THE ONLY THING YOU CAN DO IS TO RELAUNCH AGAIN WITH TANGLED LINES AND STRAIGHT TO THE BEACH TO FIX THE LINES.

Tomas means that his kite is flying in the same position as when you carry the kite into the wind by the leading edge. Rolled over so it looks like a U in the air not an arc.

another way is to help the kite decide its direction and finally get to the starting position and swim to the left or to the right.
if the kite flips into this position, you pulled too hard. try pulling softer to avoid this - it's enough when the kite is just flipping over, it doesn't need to lay on his back.

try pulling one line a bit just after flipping over the kite.

I thought he was asking which bus to catch to go to the beach.

Hmmm... I wrote a question about inverting the kite, but Tomas managed to change the subject into water relaunching the kite :cry:

Well I'll repost the original question again!
