Tip Tuesday: Landing Patterns
Heading to a new DZ? Here are a few tools from Flight-1's Justin Price to help you scope it out before you even get there...
To tie in with the Belly to Back Back Flip, the Back to Belly Front Flip transition is the 'opposite' transition, wherein a flyer transitions over their feet and knees from starting while Back flying up and over to the Belly flying orientation. It utilizes body movements important to Free Flying and will help you understand the correct use of the airflow on your body.
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.
