Diving

Earlier this week, Daniel and I shot some video, as well as some photographs, of our diving. This is something we have been doing since before the summer, but we still think that we have made considerable progress anyway. We dive solely on our own and the lack of a qualified instructor is hampering us somewhat, even though we do it only because we enjoy it. We are too old to become really good at it anyway.

I have not yet found a convenient way of publishing image galleries, so for the time being, you will only be able to watch the video recordings. There is one picture that I have to publish right away, though (I am doing a straight backward somersault from the 3-metre springboard if that is not apparent):

And now over to the video recordings:

1 metre, 1 backward, 0.5 twist (sorry for the delay)
1 metre, 1.5 forward, piked
1 metre, 1 forward, 0.5 twist
1 metre, 2 forward, tucked (sorry for the delay)
1 metre, 1 inward, tucked
1 metre, 0.5 reverse, tucked

3 metres, 1 backward, straight
3 metres, 1 forward, piked
3 metres, 1 inward, tucked
3 metres, 1 reverse, tucked

I feel that it is rewarding to look on myself like this, especially in slow motion. Not because I think I am good looking, but because I see much that I need to improve. Next time we bring cameras, we will hopefully be able to see at least some improvement and possibly a few new tricks as well. Finally, I would like to thank Daniel for bringing the cameras and for filming/photographing.
