This is the tenth video in the IBA’s Dynamic Progression ‘how-to’ series, the Half Breaker.
A Half Breaker involves performing a smooth, half barrel roll from your belly to your back as you descend from a layout or an out-face carve movement. Depending on whether you perform a head up or head down Half Breaker, the goal of the transition is the same, the difference being how you are entering and exiting the half breaker maneuver.
Being comfortable with the following skills will be important to the success of completing the Half Breaker maneuver:
- In-face and Out-face carving head-down
- In-face and Out-face carving head up
- Basic half and full barrel roll transitions
- Flying back layouts
See links below to refresh any of these skills if necessary.
