Seat Jump

Trick ID: 025
Straight jump from sitting on bar

Explanation

Wrists Catch
Swing out from the platform, bring your legs up at the front end, pass them under the bar and hold them straight in front of your face in a whip position. At the backend, push your straight legs over the top of the bar and follow with your body. Let go of the bar and grab the trapeze cables. Pull yourself quickly into a sitting position. At the front end, jump off forwards and straighten body to catch. Beginners may find it easier to hook their knees on the bar in the first position before pulling themselves up to sitting. Equally, if the sitting position cannot be achieved in the first swing (it's easy to get stuck with the bar at your knees) the timing can be changed so the catch occurs on the third swing. If this trick is being attempted with safety lines, they need to be passed in between the cables before leaving the platform.
