SEQUENTIAL TRANSITIONS

The term sequential is generally understood as a transition in which the legs each land and takeoff in a particular order, or sequence, though it can also be used to describe only part of a transition in which a landing or takeoff occurs in sequence. Sequential transitions are extremely common within vert kicking, as well as to segue from an invert axis to a vert axis, and are becoming more and more popular in the inverted realm. These transitions can be described as similar to walking and running, or shuffling of the feet, and in many cases feel just as natural and potentially powerful.


Sequential

VANISH

The Vanish occurs when a sequential landing is followed by another sequential takeoff in the same order - like walking. (eg. L-R, L-R or R-L, R,L)

EXAMPLES:
Tornado [VANISH] Tornado
Skip Hook [VANISH] Butterfly Twist



Sequential

SKIP

The Skip can be seen as a variation of a vanish, or a vanish with a little "hop".

EXAMPLES:
Scoot [SKIP] Raiz
Tornado [SKIP] Cheat 900



Sequential

REVERSAL

The Redirect occurs when a sequential landing is followed by another sequential takeoff in the reverse order. (eg. L-R, R-L or R-L, L-R)

EXAMPLES:
Tornado [REVERSAL] Aerial
Hook [REVERSAL] GMS



Sequential

REDIRECT

The Redirect occurs when a sequential landing is followed by an adjustment step and then another sequential takeoff. It usually follows the pattern of a vanish, but with an extra step in the middle.

EXAMPLES:
Hook [REVERSAL] Raiz
