description

This is a series of half axels like the cascade but this one does not lose altitude like the cascade, but actually stays stationary and/or rises up! This one is a combination of the 1/2 axel series (cascades) along with a "pop up" move.

execution

The easiest way to learn this one is to practice the cascade a lot. You will soon learn that in between 1/2 axels (cascades) you give the rotating wing a slight "pop" with an arm motion that goes from neutral up and out, which helps it along and actually pulls that wing up, similar to the pop up move from a pancaked position. You will find that timing and adjusting that according to wind speed is very crucial. This "pop up" move is also similar to the one used in the continuous axel.
