Default IB tip of the week

OK nothing better than a good example. There's a million ways to do something wrong making examples of what not to do pretty useless. That being said, I keep learning new stuff about the spin and forget to note it anywhere. I'll note it here just in case it helps someone else.

Once again disclaimers: I'm self-taught I could be totally wrong. If I am I hope someone more knowledgeable will post with a correction.

So the tip. When the balance foot is off to the side and you are ready to draw it in close (to increase rotational speed) don't move your foot back down close to the performing foot. Instead concentrate on moving the balance knee horizontally over so the knee is bent and the foot cones to about performing foots knee level.

I'm sure I heatd something about this somewhere but missed it until I experienced it.
