- "His broom gave a sudden, frightening lurch. For a split second, he thought he was going to fall. He gripped the broom tightly with both hands and knees. He'd never felt anything like that. It happened again. It was as though the broom was trying to buck him off."
This jinx (incantation unknown) was used to make broomsticks try to throw their riders off through a variety of means such as sudden lurches and violent swishing movements. Constant eye contact is required for this spell to be successful; if broken, the spell ceases to work.
Behind the scenes
- Despite being referred to as a jinx, it is possible this spell is the Hurling Hex mentioned in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Both spells can be used on broomsticks, and they both make them attempt to "hurl" off the rider.
