I just wish the Australian girl would do all the tutorials. At least she walks you through all the steps and doesn't leave you in dire straits with balls flying in your face and hitting you all over the body...

I think the lack of attention to these moves is ridiculous. I KNOW there are far better videos online on how to do all of these moves. For being a site completely devoted to this stuff I don't think I am out of line saying these tutorials are terrible.

Nathaniel Everest on youtube has far better tuts, would it kill someone to put two videos up for these moves? Give me the app code to this place and I'll do it!

its not that complex just study all kinds of transitions and you will start to understand what you need to do.

This move is actually not that complex... the transition should be rather easy if you're already comfortable with foward and backwards 3beat weaves... you can feel the movement of the poi to know when is the right moment to do the transition grin
Life is like a rollercoaster, it is exciting and full of experiences... but only if u have what it takes to get on board!!!

I have to agree, it looks more difficult than it is.
I may be doing it wrong, but it works for me.
When I go to switch over to continue the 3 beat weave, I just turn my body so the cross of my hands happens infront of me, then by the time it continues, I'm facing the other way, making it reversed.
Sorry if that didn't make much sense.>_>

It took a few times watching this and a lot of assumption, but i think i got it down.

I like the other version: forward 3b, reverse 3b, then overhead for a 2b windmill, then back to forward 3b. saw that Nick dude do it, also known as Meenik
