Dude do you know how to fly a sport kite? "This is considered one of the easier tricks to perform on a kite" The comete is considered a group 4 trick in Tricksparty. Not considered easy,

The COMÈTE is a tumbling trick in which the kite rotates in a single direction (clockwise or counterclockwise). In
each rotation, the kite passes through roughly four positions: (1) belly down, nose away (flare); (2) nose
pointing down and slightly to one side (approximately 7:00 for clockwise rotation, 5:00 for counterclockwise);
(3) belly up, nose away (TURTLE); (4) nose pointing left or right (approximately 3:00 for clockwise rotation, 9:00
for counterclockwise). This series of four positions constitutes one rotation. The method and direction of entry
and exit do not matter.
