Hi to all
I found on one video, something different kind of does not look as  regular.
Looks like evolutions are shorter and nose of the kite is almost all time direct to the ground....or it is regular cascade just made faster with shorter pulls?
Any info about making this kind of cascade
- here is the link...... moment on 1min and 35 second
-scroll down and just click on VIDEOS (1)

Just left/right  PULL inputs between K-7 & K-5. Not really a cascade as there is no axel movement.

Takes quick inputs - tough at my age (60) - go upward at K-10 & K-2 is also a good trick to music ... used it occasionally in AKA comps at Wildwood - good to music when music is up & down for a stretch and to get your kite up and down in the window rather than just a straight line ...

For me its impossible to do it that quickly. Some cascades can be done by simply slashing left and right ... just a different technique ... remember one with a Transformer TL and that young Canadian pilot that recently did that Rev video in the street ... Cascade slashing ...
