DOUBLE BACK SOMERSAiULT

This sequence shows spotting forward on takeoff of double back somersau lt . Most important picture, however, is frame number feur which clearly shows Dan spotting forward between somersaults.

happy about our narrow victory that they started turning out some fantastic stunts for the folks gathered around the trampoline. Here are some of the things they saw and didn't believe: 1. Aft~r a couple of tries Dale Hardt managed to pull around a quadruple twisting cody! 2. Both Frank Schmitz and Dale did a forward triffus with the 1fz twist in the second somersault. (What do you call ita front-barany-back, a barany out back, a front·baran y in, or a barany within triffus? ) 3. Frank did a full in-double back out triffus (back with full-back-back) and then one I still don't believe; 4. A back in-double full out fliffus (backback with double). He waits until he completes his first somersault until he starts the twist. 5. And here is one for the record. Dale performed five full in-full out fliffuses (back with full-back with full) followed by a Rudolph out (front-front with 1V2 twist) all in swing.
