Coping with Competition
Using competition butterflies to make your performance better, not worse...
This is the fourth video in IBA’s Dynamic Progression ‘how-to’ series, Back Carving. Back carving, is a mix of skills that pull from everything that you have learned as a competent back flyer, combining them together carefully to create a balanced and smooth circular motion around the tunnel that will ultimately lead to head up and head down carving.
Before learning how to Back Carve, you will first need to be sure that you are a very comfortable at Back flying, ensuring that you can confidently move in every direction comfortably, without any concern. It will also be helpful to have comfort in flying on your Back while being able to fully rotate your head from one side to the other from a neutral position and then also rotating your head from a neutral, looking upward position, to rotating your head back to look behind you all while maintaining the same position within the flight chamber and not drifting toward the tunnel wall.
