"Underwater he casts a spell which propels him towards the surface, he flies out and lands on the decking where the crowd are."

Ascendio is a charm used to lift the caster high into the air or propel them to the surface should they be underwater at the time.

It is unknown if this spell is taught at Hogwarts, or if it only appears in books found in the school's library.

Known uses

This spell was used by Harry Potter in 1995 to reach the surface of the Black Lake after he was cornered by mermaids.

Behind the scenes
