– Just as you did for the WI extension, ride up to the top and
remember this time to keep your feet together. Squeezing and keeping
your chest up is vital to the success of this stunt. Initiate the
turn with you head by aiming to turn yourself almost 90 degrees (Base
will turn you the next 45 degrees). Spot to front to stop your turn.
Squeeze you entire body for stability. When stopped pull your
arabesque (remember to keep your toe pointed, chest up, your leg
parallel to the ground, and your head turned to the front).
The only adjustment to a Walk IN Arabesque from a Walk IN Extension is
the Finish. The Walk in itself should be exactly the same. In order
to finish, you need to turn an extra 45 degrees. Your right hand will
continue to the standard arabesque position with you index finger
pointing to the left side of your body. Your left hand will grab the
flier’s right heel in a so-called “hamburger” grip OR “overlap” grip
per preference. (NOTE: You will need to squeeze hard at the top to
stop any momentum that comes from the spin.)
