          The reason that works is because the Wipika Airblast comes with the
          reverse launch (power booster) system on the kite.
          Naish made up the Booster as a retrofit for accomplishing the same
          thing.

            The simple easy fix is to add a 5th line for reverse launching. Just loop a line under the folded
            flap of one rib. Tie the line there. When you pull it, the kite will flip one wing up and away she
            flies. The line may pull the flap open once in a while. You can sew a connection, but this way works
            quick and gets you going. The full blown reverse launch bridle isn't needed and is more dangerous.
            The launch will throw you hard will the full bridle. Just flipping the kite and then working it up
            is less violent.
