• At the hip, make sure the flyer does not drop backwards, use your knee underneath the shoulder of the flyer

• Bases keep the flyer’s head up and off the ground if they fall
• Flyers can drop into a wheel in the worst case


• Keep your arms perfectly straight, and stacked above your shoulders
• Weight should be in the base of your hand, fingers more on the back side of the shoulder
• Control the position of your flyer with the distance your foot has to your arms

• Be a stick
• Only let go when you feel stable
• Do not arch
