The 3rd episode of 'PILOT' features Fred, Lucas, Bram, Marcel, Wilfred and Ronald who all perform the Half Axel trick at the Tricksparty Afterparty 2019, Ginkelse Heide. See description and how to vote below:

Half Axel
The trick starts with the kite flying horizontally in either direction, then falls onto its belly, turns nose away from the pilot, and rotates 180°. The kite is then snapped back into flight with the nose pointing exactly opposite the initial direction and should exit in a straight line.

Wind: variable, bumpy, with gusts up to 35 km/h
