Fractured Axel

a.k.a. None


Fly an Axel until the nose points away then "fracture" the Axel by pulling it into a Fade


Primary Execution

Start the kite to Axeling by giving a small push with one hand then popping with the other. Once the nose is pointing away pull with both hands so the nose pitches underneath the kite and faces you with the kite now upside down in a Fade. Some kites prefer an uneven pull to balance out the momentum of the Axel rotation.

Alternative Executions

You can use any execution listed on the Axel page.
