English term or phrase:Fade (Pancake to Fade)

Axel to Fade
This is just one of many other ways to get into a fade, and some people find it easier than from a pancake. Do a nice flat axle with one and then as it turns about 1/3 of the way around pull the opposite hand which will swing the nose under and into the fade. Use your hands to take up slack in the lines so that the nose doesn't hit them and bounce back out of the fade. Notice the subtle movements in the hands to the left. They take up slack and as the kite nose rises, the hands give a little slack to stop the nose from bouncing back and out of the fade.
Pancake to Fade
The easiest way to learn the Fade is by flying downwards, letting the nose fly away into a ‘pancake’ position, then pulling with both lines to swing the nose under and into the fade position. The kite will then be floating on its back with the nose towards you and the lines draped over the leading edge. You control the fade by gently adjusting tension on the lines to change the angle of the nose to the wind. When you’re ready to fly again, reverse the move by giving slack to let the nose rise up, then pulling to swing it down into a pancake again. Fades are generally much easier to do when the winds are light and smooth.
