When base has fully extended his arms, then you want to release not a

for the extension with you legs slightly apart. DO not try to place
your feet in the base’s hands. This will make you fight with your bas

stand behind the flier with feet just slightly beyond shoulder width
apart. Lightly grasp the flier by the waist (NO DEATH GRIPS). On
count follow the flier while she jumps (this way you both have good
