This section covers material based on definitions and concepts created by Dan Perez De Tejada and covered on Aeriformmat.com.
Mr. Perez demonstrates the invert landing stances, and their application with the swingthrough transition in the video above. Below each trick, the landing stance used is labeled.
Why do landings need a dedicated section?
- Because the way we land dictates our possible transitions into another trick. It is the manipulation of our landing stances that gives us the opportunity to turn the mundane into the extraordinary through transitional diversity.
Well, how many landings are there?
- There are several ways to land from both vert kicks and inverted tricks. There are 4 main landings for vert kicks, and 4 for inversions, with less common variations for each, depending on how specific you want to get. These types will be further explained on subsequent pages.
