Chapter 3. Basic Edges -
Back Inside Spiral (extension)

Backward cross-overs are again the logical means of getting into the inside back spiral (Illus. 16). After gaining speed mov­ing in a clockwise direction, cross strongly over onto your RIB and allow your free leg and foot to move into a leading posi­tion on the curve.

 If you hold your arms and shoulders as previ­ously directed for the cross-overs, you will be all set for the IB spiral, skating shoulder forward and free arm and shoulder pressed back. Both your hips and shoulders should be on the line of the circle so that your stomach faces in toward the cen­ter and your back is to the outside, facing just the reverse of the outside forward spiral but with the hips and shoulders in essentially the same alignment—can you see that the difference is merely one of lean and direction?

Turn your head over your free shoulder inside the circle and watch where you are going. To maintain control, press your free hip constantly backward and stretch your free leg taut. When you are certain of this control through the hips, you may allow your free arm to move forward and the skating arm back, so that the shoulders are gracefully across the line of the skate. Keep looking back over the free shoulder. As always, turn and practice the other way.
