To perform the basic figures, pull gently on the left-hand handle (turn to the left) or the right-hand handle (turn to the right). When you have just performed a left turn, pull gently on the right-hand handle in order to come out of the turn. Make gentle, controlled movements. As far as possible, keep the hands at waist height and at 1/2 m distance.
Important: If you have made the kite turn two or three times to the left, you must make it turn exactly the same number of times to the right. In this way the lines are freed again and new figures can be performed.
