Maja Kuczynska – Bigger than the Sky
Stunning routine by Maja Kuczyńska
This is the seventh video in IBA’s Dynamic Progression ‘how-to’ series, Head-Up In-Face Carve. An In-Face Carve requires the combination of two motions: a forward drive and a turn. If you feel comfortable with these two points of motion while sit-flying, then you will find an In-Face Carve a simple skill to fly. However, an efficient and fast In-Face Carve requires a different body position that many aren’t used to flying at first, and this is where you might find a bit of a challenge: carving with the leading leg down, and your hips out (eventually, you’ll be able to carve with both legs down).
There are a few pre-requisite skills that could help you better achieve this position: being able to sit-fly in place with one leg down, or the ability to go forwards and backwards while straightened out (both legs down).
