Clarification – L1 Lift

The correct answer to the Level 1 Lift quiz is the skill in the video is illegal in Level 1. Because the flyer is lifted by the waist to above the base’s head, this stunt requires a spotter.  We look at the connection between the flyer and the base in relation to the base’s body.  The only exception for these type of lifts not requiring a spotter is up to 1/2 twisting transitions that go to/from the performing surface.  This stunt goes from stunt to floor, the required base cannot also be the required spotter, and the other bases are not in position to be considered a spotter.
