    Hi Steve. Just one comment. You mention and correctly show how to remove the cramp on your leg. Saying this, you just say bend your knee so you can grab your fin. I have been teaching for years and also had difficulty doing this (I am older and have a bit of a belly). Some of my younger adult students had the same difficulty. Then I found (and I think it may have been from one of your videos) that you should bend you knee in a ‘figure four’ manner. This makes it VERY easy to grab the fin tip, then you can stretch to relive the cramp.

    I’m a skydiver and pilot. Not to be critical, but you should NOT hold tension during body flight. What you are trying to describe is belly-to-earth, which is the most basic (and stable) orientation. Every part of your body is a control surface, so staying relaxed depending on your angle of attack to the relative wind allows for the best freedom of motion. As a wingsuit flyer, I would need to “plank” slightly as you described to create a rigid platform in which to fly. Other disciplines, such as freeflying, may also need small amounts of tension. But not to the point where one would induce an unintended movement or action. That’s how people die.

    Anyways, great videos. They are an excellent source of information.
