It's called flaking. Just ask any local sailor to show you how to
flake a line.
It matters not how experienced you are, nor how dedicated to the task. If you're
not having fun, you are doing it wrong.

I've also heard it called over-under coil, audio coil, and figure-8 coil.
You can also find it described in any sort of water safety instruction
book as a method of quickly tying a series of knots into a coil of rope.
ONly for our purposes, you don't pass the end through the middle and
toss the coil back out.
