For the rewind liberty, the male will grab the female around the hips like a toss stunt, but will have his index finger and thumbs more on her back making a W with both hands. He will dip with the female and at the top of the toss will focus on flipping the female with his palms and wrists as he steps into the stunt. It is very important to not "pull back" and to keep the female in a straight line and initiate the flip at the top of the toss. As the female flips, the male must spot for both feet and grab a regular liberty grip while absorbing the impact with his arms locked and his knees bent. As the stunt hits, the male will fully lock out his legs, and the dismount will be a regular pop off.
The female will start with both of her hands by her side or in a "low v" motion. As the female starts her dip she will set her arms straight up as if she was setting for a standing back tuck. It is important to keep her head looking forward until the male initiates her flip. As the flip is initiated, the female will focus on bringing her knees and shins to her forward to rotate through her hips and not with her shoulders. As the female is flipping, she must keep her eyes open and spot for the males hands. As the female spots for the hands, she must continue her flip and stand up by opening up standing straight up landing on the male's hands. After feeling a solid grip on her foot, the female will pull a regular liberty and the dismount is a regular pop off.
Rewind Pull Arabesque
The technique is the same for the male and female for the rewind pull arabesque except as the female is opening up and standing up she will pull her arabesque and land in the stunt. The arabesque grip in this stunt is the same as a liberty grip as the stunt is shown from the side to gain a better view of the pulling aspect of the stunt. The dismount is a regular pop off.
The technique is the same for the rewind cupie as a rewind liberty except the male will spot for both feet with the one hand of his choice. It is important that the male step into the stunt and not try to look at it and arch backwards. The dismount shown is a funny or front cradle and is described under cradles under partner stunt transitions.
