Easily, backstall one side of the kite. In the video it is 15m2 Sonic-FR.

Cannot tell which bar it is, 50cm or 60cm. Leader lines are on outer position. On 60cm bar + outer position might be enough it make "Helio". Or there might be additional leaderline loops under the floaters to shorten the steering lines. On 50cm bar most like there are addional loops because on standard bar&leader -trim you cannot do that without pulling leader lines from floaters.

Waiting to see one in a race :-) Good fun in light wind trying to do endless ones. As joriws said back stall one side. You can pull on a ball.

Got it. Pulled off a few yesterday... More practice and need to watch conditions as wing will bite hard when you stop the wing stall.
