Dropping into the Halfpipe: The Alley-Oop, Part One

Dropping into the Halfpipe: The Alley-Oop, Part One

With sufficient speed, you'll rise up and above the pipe. Keep looking in the direction of your spin (to the left in this case), and start bringing your downhill arm around to prepare for re-entry.

If you set your hips well enough at the takeoff, it's just a matter of squeezing your legs together and looking over your shoulder as you float around.

Keep your inside shoulder open to your rotation, and keep looking for your landing.
