While moving in the horizontal plane the skier approaches the jump. The takeoff is initiated both upwards and backwards which starts a primary rotation in the horizontal axis. The upper and lower body then extend. There is a flexion at the waist between the upper body and lower body to the tuck position. The body rotations backwards a total of 360 degrees, then the skiers extends and prepares for the landing.
