1. Body position – A tightly wound object has more momentum. I mimic this idea with my flip turn by tucking my head and knees into my chest and pulling my feet to my hips.

Head, knees and feet in.

2. Momentum with arms – In my ‘tucked’ body position, my hands and arms help pull and push my body around.

3. Feet – Point your toes. With my arms assisting to spin my ‘tucked’ body position around, I will also point my toes, creating a flicking motion.
