The roads were a bit icy, so I left home after sunrise and arrived at 9 along with Dean. It was a productive day, although it felt a bit more like hard work as I spent most of the time trying to get the FTM and SM right.
I'm going to have to drop the 4 point tictocs from SM. I just can't get them consistent, even in practically zero wind. If you don't get the first movement perfect, it moves up or down. As the height settles, you get something not quite right and it starts wandering and looking very messing.
The piro rainbow X reversal works OK, nice and high K factor too. I just need to choose 2 new moves to replace the tictocs.
Today was the first time I used headphones to listen to the music as I flew. Although most of it fits, there are parts that just don't time right and others that I'm not good enough to do IRL.
2 Months to go and I still need to figure the FS routine as well. This is turning into bloody hard work.

When exactly is your 1st competition? I didn't realise it'd be so soon. Me and Clare will be there to cheer you on.

It's May sometime, they haven't released the dates yet. The Season Opener is at the Gliding Club if I don't see you before that.
