Re: Slow down on the backcast

Mark's suggestions are similar to my approach, especially the one about delivering on the BC. Other things I'd suggest: Watch the BC Cast in synchronicity with the student, asking them to match my tempo Try to get them to use the "minimum power drill" on the BC (i.e. just enough power to stop the lo...

Regarding the velocity values, remember that this was a very laid-back kin...
