Stand behind the base with both hands on the bases’ corresponding
shoulders. Place your right foot in the pocket of the base’s left
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 L-hitch, pull your
right leg up to your side base for the L-hitch. Flier’s L-hitch leg
should be pointing to the side and your thigh parallel to the ground.
DO not put much weight on this side base as the hitch is just an
Side base –
stand to the right of the main base. As the flier hitches to you make
sure her foot points left and that that her thigh is parallel to the
ground. Bend your arms if it is necessary to accomplish this effect.
(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.
– Start in a lunge
position with your left leg bent and left foot facing perpendicular to
the crowd your are facing. Your right leg should be straight and your
right foot will face towards the crowd. Keep your upper body facing
the crowd at all times. When the flier places her right foot, take
your right arm around the back of the flier’s right leg and brace
above her knee. Your right 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 her braced. As
the flier pulls her L-hitch, make sure that you continue to squeeze.
For the dismount, follow the flier’s waist for the finish.
