    Flying layback, Inverted Spiral

    Is there anybody who can perform these moves?

    What about a double flying sit spin?

    Not sure what you mean by "inverted spiral." There was a clip floating around a year or so ago that showed a girl doing a flying layback.

    A Korean girl did the flying layback (title was 'first flying layback spin') at the 2006 Four Continents Championship. I think it was Ji-Eun Choi.

    ETA: On second thought, maybe it wasn't her. It was a Korean girl from last year wearing a pale-blue dress. The video was really blurry and it was a 10 second clip, but it was very clearly a flying layback.

    Wait, I was partly-right the first time. It was Ji-Eun Choi who did the flying layback at the 2005 Four Continents Championship. (Note: The video may not work just yet; I uploaded it a few hours ago).

    I agree--it doesn't look pretty. And the only reason why it's being credited as a layback is cos she doesn't do the three-rotations in the bad sit position =P

    Pretty soon a skater out there will try flying biellmann.

    (I do think she can do the flying layback--if she'd taken the flying camel approach, rather than the flying sit)

    It looked kind of juvenile to me. Done very rough, like she was deliberately trying to show off. She should stay away from IMO.

    it would have looked better if she had done a regualt flying sit and then up into a layback.

    I thought it was cool. It could be brilliant if the right skater did it but needs sharper positions as well as speed. But that's a non-skater opinion.

    I too agree that if she had the flying camel entry it might look better than the flying sit entry. Didn't do much for me either.

    She didn't really do a proper flying layback -- but what appears to be a flying tuck into a layback. A true flying layback achieves the layback position while airborne and lands in the layback spinning. Ji lands and then does a sideways leaning spin.

    The flying layback was done years ago - I've seen some male skaters do better ones than Ji..... Lesley Hawker of Canada had a really great flying layback a couple of years ago that she was working on but when the CoP system was revised - it was just not worth the points to do it -- and few callers really id'd it properly.

    Flying layback sounds like a move for Caroline Zhang or Mirai Nagasu. The flying tuck is what I liked!

    Flying camel entrance would put the skater in a backspin, which generally isn't done for a layback.

    I don't think it was pretty either. If anyone has a video of someone doing it as it's supposed to be done, I'd love to see it!! Sounds nigh to impossible.
