Other Names: Koala

This trick is similar in principle to the more familiar (but no less novel) Piggy Back Catch, but is done with Flyer B on Flyer A's front, rather than their back.

Flyer B climbs onto Flyer A in a Bear Hug position on the platform (facing each other with Flyer B's legs wrapped around A's waist - Flyer B either holds the bar, or onto Flyer A's shoulders). They are assisted in leaving the board together. As thy swing forward, Flyer B lets go of the bar and leans back to catch the opposite Fly Bar (or a Stick) from underneath, then unhooks their legs from Flyer A to swing away. Flyer A stays on their own bar.
