Just as PAW mentioned, a comete; one that is landed at the turtle phase.

Let's add a bit to the fire, a comete from the ground and land after the next axel phase  Cool : @1:25

Best of luck Boris  Smiley

It's one of the harder tricks to learn IMO

Mama74 and RandyG do good tutorials on this trick.

Some flyers get the comete in a short time, and some, like me, are still working it out 4-5 years later....  Cheesy

And you're right, it is a good looking trick  Cool

Learn a half axel turn really well first.

For me, the first inputs for the half axel that translate directing into the axel-to-fade, slot machine, taz machine, comete, and even the snap lazy and inverse.
