description

The kite takes off directly into an axel.

execution

With the kite set on it's wing tips, give a short tug on one hand followed by a firm tug on the other, much as in a standard axel. The kite should jump up and perform an axel. This move can be done straight into a landing by simply walking forward as soon as the wing tips come parallel to the ground. The latter move (axel take off to landing) is also called a "Miguel Rodrigez Coin Toss" since that is what originally was called a Coin toss. A slightly different axel take off is done if with the kite on it's wing tips you pop both lines shortly to get the kite slightly off the ground and after that perform the normal axel-push/axel-pop motions.
