Inspired by Nina S., I decided to give Flakas a try. It took me 7 years to land a vulcan. I am taking bets on time to flaka. Right now, they are no air tail-lift/skid UW360 fails. I only tried one today when the wind was lighter, but I need a port tack move to work on these days. I have a long way to go, but I need to commit to it. You have to start somewhere. I think it is a cool move when done well. One of my grail trilogy (vulcan/spock, loop, flaka). Some of the attempt crashes from Trictionary look brutal, but my feet/mind want me to put the vulcan away for now.
