I would only do this technique if I had a high Y kite, like in the video (north Vegas). IMO its a bit too dangerous because the kite isn't truly flagged and can power up again if you don't reach it while your running to the kite (especially in windy/gusty conditions).
This is how I do it. Check out 3:30 of the Video. With a four line kite put the kite in the same position as in the video, but pull in the TOP FRONT LINE. Kite fall leading edge down, and is secure because you have flagged it on a front line. Do not put bar down and run to kite, but rather walk up front line (continue to pull on the front line in order to ensure it remains flagged).
One major reason why I own low Y kites, because I have to self launch and land like 80% of the time!http://vimeo.com/93699424
