Something Mark Lummas told me, fly the figure, finish / Land, call out like the judge is deaf and a mile away. Then dont move the kite for at least 5 seconds!! That give the judge time to see the kite "land" stay still, they turn round and the last thing they remember is how well you finished the figure - as a judge trust me its subtle but it works - as a flyer trust me it works :kid_smartass:

Agreed Simon, I always call in, mentally count 1, 2, LAUNCH... After my out call, I traditionally wait about 3 seconds before launching to unwrap, etc.

Remember, there's a mood implied by how you enter and exit the comp field, as well as your in/out calling methodology.

Sure, judging "should" be all facts from the routine, but setting the stage effects their mood, and helps you convey the style they're going to be judging.

Got a few questions regarding compulsories -

How does the call in/out proceedure apply to precision moves that start near the top of the window, like the Two Down?

I see certain moves can be performed "flyer's choice" (Lollypop), in any direction. Is this possible for all the compulsories, or only for the ones where it is specifically mentioned?

Just curious.....

Have Rev, Will Travel

It is best to refer directly to the ISK Compulsories Book". http://www.worldspor...Book v2.2.1.pdf . Any changes can be found at: http://www.worldspor...Book v2.2.1.pdf . Click on rules. There are other sites that also have the rule books.
Anything I say here may or may not be correct as I am only responding with what I recall. It has been over 6 years since I rewrote the book. In 2007 I retired from competition kiting.
Refer to the drawing. Where it is written IN is when you call IN. That is before the first element is flown.
Refer to the drawing. Where it is written OUT is when you call OUT. That is after the last element is flown.
I believe all figures can be flown mirror, however you must inform the field director, before you attempt to fly the figure, who will inform the judges. If you don't then you will get a zero.
