The Axel is a 360° belly-down rotation. It begins with the kite in a Stall, nose-up. The kite then falls belly down, nose toward the pilot and rotates a full 360°. The kite should be oriented nose-up for both entry and exit. For the best score, the Axel should be low, flat, and in the center of the window.
- Flat rotation
- Nose-up entry and exit
