Flying Trapeze - No Safety Lines

Today, I finally performed my first trick to the net without safety Lines.

In order to land safely in the net from a trick, I first had to learn the Face Off where flyers turn their bodies around mid-air to land on their back. After a lots of practice on the airbag, I moved over to the net to attempt my first Splits out of safety lines. I didn't feel too nervous, but it showed when I started turning as soon as I released the bar. On my second and third attempts, I correctly reached out first for the catch before completing my Face Off.
