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.

Key Elements:

Stall. Flat, full 360° rotation. Nose-up entry and exit.

Judges view:

The stall should be well visible. Rotation is flat and a full 360°. OUT is a straight line up.

Most common errors:

The axel is done close to the edge of the wind window. No full 360°. Not vertically out. Not a straight flight OUT. 


We have 3 videos, each with small flaws in the trick. Easy to judge. The first one has no Snap Stall, the others are not 360°.
