keep trying? :roll:

can you surface pass??? cause thats what you gotta do first to step up to that flat 3.

its the easiest to try that trick in crosshore conditions. go downwind towards a small wave or whitewater, unhook, take tension off the lines, use speed to jump the kicker, turn 360 degree, grab the bar and land ;-)

in fact its not a hard trick. once you get the feeling and the timing for the power on the lines and the wave, you will nail it over 30cm whitewater just like over 1 meter waves with more speed!

and if you fail you at least get some funny shots from time 2 time :D

@bullshit
flat 3 is a 360 degree spin with a handlepass over a wave (i guess ;-) )

ye iv pretty much cracked flat 3s an i only tried em like 7 times or something. just tie a bar up, jump and pass and youl get the memory in your muscle about what to do, then when out kiting get your courage up, unhook a few metres b4 a wave and keep heading downwind with alot of speed so you can get the height and as you come off the wave twist whichever way your passing and put bar out behind ur back and youd be suprised how easy it is. first time i tried it i passed bar and i was so surprised that it was in my hand i laughed in mid air and forgot the landing! the best thing about this trick is that even if you dont make the pass you can continue 360 and land then pulling leash in and carry on kiting without crashing at all.
iv only landed this a few times and this is the way i do it so you may have a different method, but just go out there and try it, set yourself the goal of trying it 10 times in a session or something untill you get it! i still have to try surface passes :-? ...

regards, smoore

If your riding right foot forward, spin clockwise (frontside 360)
