Coping with Competition
Using competition butterflies to make your performance better, not worse...
To tie in with the other transitions from your back to your belly and vice versa, the Belly to Back Back Flip transition uses a different set of skills than the barrel roll moves. While the flips are slightly more challenging than the barrel rolls, this skill will help you understand the correct use of the airflow on your body, an important aspect of learning to Free Fly.
To learn to so this transition you should be stable and aware in both Belly Flying and Back Flying orientations. It’s not necessary, but ideal, if you are also comfortable Knee Flying as well.
