Good detail. The S wrap is built in the breakdancer pose, moving the tail into the wheeldown position, often also called a U lock because of the shape the tail makes around the pole. The prep for the Jump Rope Slack Drop wraps the tail around the pole again. So there is a lot of friction around the pole at this moment. When you do the Jump Rope, you are taking off the extra wrap around the pole to get back to the U lock/S wrap for the wheel down. If the Jump Rope moves around the body but not above where the tail contacts the pole, friction will stay. Since you are taking off a loop with the Jump Rope, there will be slack eventually. But to get that dramatic drop, feeding the slack into the tail around the pole is key. Really toss around the body and slightly up! Happy training! Tuck that shirt! It bites!
