Postby dhia » Wed Oct 17, 2007 7:27 pm

a problem with my slims; i do very good inverted forwards unhooked but seem to able to block and get to the bar. Very frustrated:

2) where do you put your head

slimchance:
1. go as fast as you can possibly ride- this will give you more slack in the lines once you have popped off the water and as a bonus you might get some respect.
2. dont think about doing a slimchance think about doing a front flip first.
3. once you feel yourself nearly completing the front flip pull in hard on your back arm and thrown your body into a frontside3.
4.grab the bar on the otherside and you have pretty much completed this move.
5. at first you will be doing more of a roll then a spin (which i think actually looks cooler) but as you do it more it tends to change into a slimchance because you do the actions closser together and at once.

hope that helps.

Look to the bar (wich has to be) at your back hip. This way you will invert pretty much.
Don't start passing the bar to early, rotate deeper.
After passing the bar, look to the landing point at the water.
