Kite Tricks


Group 2


The Cascade is a series of reversing, descending Half Axels. The trick is entered from a horizontal line of flight, nose pointing straight right (3:00) or straight left (9:00). With each Half Axel, the kite alternates between the 3:00 and 9:00 positions, ideally pausing a moment in each position before the next reversing Half Axel. The kite must descend through the window, and the sequence must contain at least three Half Axels. Ideally this trick is initiated at the top of the window and descends all the way to the bottom, and the kite exits in a straight line, in the direction that the nose pointed last.
