Base lies on back (legs may be straddled for greater stability). Top stands between baseís legs, arms extended to sides. Base curls upper body upwards sufficiently to be able to cup hands around anterior iliac spines (prominent bones on either side of abdomen).of top. (Figure 7A)
Top leans forward with straight body, as base carries top to balanced position. Top arches back upwards. (Figure 7B)
Stunt ends by reversing the motion and returning topís feet to mat.
Spotting: Spotter stands at topís side and holds upper arm of top with two hands.
Variation: A high swan in hands can be performed by top placing hands on standing baseís shoulders and jumping into final position as base lifts top and extends arms vertically upwards. Spotting is from behind base.
