Back Dive Tucked
Level – Board Skills 3 (Advanced Group)
The back dive tucked proves difficult to learn for many divers because fear makes them forget all the processes they have previously learnt.
The back dive tucked is a combination of a number of different skills, the back pike sit on the poolside, armswing back jump tucked on 1m and back fall on 1m (or back tuck roll).
If divers think of the back dive tucked being all those skills added together and think of it as being a process of combining these skills and moving from A to B to C to D during the performance of the skill, they will be far more successful than if they try to get from A to D without any consideration of B & C! That is why so much time is spent working on the skill broken down into pieces, rather than always working on the whole skill.
