description

The COIN TOSS is a ground trick in which the kite balances on one wingtip and then executes a HALF AXEL with the top wing and comes to rest on the opposite wingtip, where it must remain for at least two seconds.

execution

A coin toss starts with the kite in a Wing tip stand. Next perform an axel-pop on the wing that's in the air by gently pushing it back a small way and then popping it towards you. Now extend your arms forward to give slack in the lines and allow the kite to rotate. After the kite has rotated, try and land on the opposite wing tip by walking forward. This move can be done from standing on one wing tip but can be performed out of a side slide as well. Take care the slide is a little downward. When the kite touches the ground with it's wingtip, immediately do the axel pop on the wing still in the air. Take a look at the axel take off description as well because the description of the "Miguel Rodrigez coin toss" is there.
