Rider then grabs the bar with opposite hand and does another 90 degree turn in the same direction.

A lot of riders do this move, especially mutant riders. Check out footage of Flash Austin or Mark Shinn, they do this regularly. The typical sequence of events goes:
1 Approach transition point riding toeside with forward arm's hand scraping the water.
2: At the same time as you move the kite to the other side of the window, do a forward summasault over your forward hand
3: Stand up while driving your kite into the window in the opposite direction from which you entered the tumble turn

PMUs right. i've seen guys do this move, it looks quite cool. Sometimes it happens when guys try their first spins and they end up doin one of these... they look way cooler than proper spins too!
