Posted:Reverse weave! Cause that opens LOADS of doors, especially when you link it with a normal forwards weave. Learn that, and you'll have fountains fairly soon afterwards... biggrin

Posted:Reels. Really good to learn cos they're so versatile. Learn some reel combinations and you can put them in with anything to make it look really good (REELy - no, now I look at it it's not actually that funny).

Also reverse weave, as Sambo_Flux said

Posted:I'll ditto Sambo_Flux as well. Frankly you can take all those moves you know and learn them backwards. Also changing the planes of the movements-- Corkscrew done standing up is Windmill, for example. Mexican Butterfly becomes Corkscrew if you bend over.

Posted:I agree-Reverse weave is the next thing to learn because you can get so many new tricks or ways to get in to them hug

Posted:mike, hate to be pedantic, but that's releasing and catching not wibbling!
