Thigh Stand hitch

 

 

 

 

 

 

Flier – Stand behind the base with both hands on the bases’ corresponding shoulders.  Place your left foot in the pocket of the base’s right thigh pocket.  On count step up (step and lock) in the base’s pocket and push straight down through the base. Make sure you straighten both legs and keep your head down at the stunt. For the hitch, pull your right leg up to the right side and slightly in front of you and hitch it to the hitch base who is on your right.  Make sure that your keep most of your weight in your left leg, because your right leg is just and effect.  If you place your weight in your right leg, then the stunt will fall.  Now finish with a Hi-V.  For dismount, bring your arms to your sides, your head down, and drop your foot around towards the ground and absorb your landing.

 

Back spot – (Hands on spotting at all times). Start behind the flier and grab her waist with your corresponding hands. Follow her up and down the stunt, while never letting go.

 

Base – Start in a lunge position with your right leg bent and right foot facing perpendicular to the crowd your are facing.  Your left leg should be straight and your left foot will face towards the crowd.  Keep your upper body facing the crowd at all times. When the flier places her left foot, take your right arm around the back of the flier’s left leg and brace above her knee.  Your left hand needs to brace under the flier’s left foot.  Before she steps up, make sure you are bracing her to your body.  On count as the flier steps, make sure you have the flier braced at all times as she hitches. For the dismount, follow the flier’s left leg around your head then let go and brace her waist for the finish.

 

Hitch Base- Spot to the flier’s right.  As the flier lifts her right leg, slightly grab the flier’s foot underneath.  It should be subtle, as this is just for an effect.  For the dismount, guide the fliers foot down and brace for the finish.
