Yes! We are so excited about Zoe being here!
For the walk down of the back dive, check if you are keeping tension on the tail so the wrap doesn’t get any slack you don’t need until the chair sit transition and if you are pressing the top leg back into the wrap as the front leg moves forward. There is a use of pressure between the lock and the leg to create the friction to keep the slide. The wraps want to start high and tight around the thighs, right under the bum, so your power is maximized when you press into the back of the thighs before the legs move forward of the pole. Brett does hit a toes upright pose, but the toes are not quite straight up to the pole and that slight angle back is useful!
