But "nose"? In the animation, I saw the nose of the kite point toward the sky upward, not to the flier who stood on the ground.
Oh. I thought I saw the kite's nose (i.e., the top of the triangular shaped form) go up and then down. But, mind you, there are various kinds of axels. If you check back at that site, you'll see a page that lists the different kinds of axels. :D
