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...
Bodyflight Basics, broken down into every element by SDC Rhythm:
JaNette describes the neutral FS body position, the building block for all other moves. Master a good, symmetrical, head-high position and everything else is easy from here.
JaNette explains and demos how to use the arms, head, legs, hips, butt and gut to change fall rate.
Moving forwards and backwards, always keeping the arms in front. JaNette explains how to use arms and legs for optimal effect, and the principle of Start - Coast - Stop, which applies to virtually every freefall move.
Using input from all limbs, and remembering Start- Coast- Stop - Neutral, demoed and explained by JaNette.
JaNette describes how to turn on center. Creating a balanced input with arms and legs – just like sideslides but with opposite limbs.
Steve describes and Christy demos how to turn on center using the proper references. Defining checkpoints and headswitch through the turn to confirm we're on track to complete our move in place.
JaNette describes a simple 2-way drill for practicing sideslides and turns. Building a half-star and half-bipole picture, focussing on good stops and 90 degree angles.
