Trick ID: 173
Leave the platform and immediately make a position
This departure is possible for several tricks (Split, Whip, Straddle Whip, Bird's Nest), however it is described below for a Bird's nest, which is one of the easier options. As you jump up and off the platform (departure of your choice up to this point), bring your shoulders and head back and your hips up in front of you to put your legs on the bar. Push your butt through in between your hands and quickly make a Bird's Nest position. Making a catch directly from a trick departure is known as a 'half time' trick.
