so what are some of your tricks to diving into snakes and getting in bunkers fast and low? somtimes when im running to the snake i swing a little wide to put the bunkers in between me and anyone laning, then i dive down a little before i get to the snake and crawl in fast. just post up any little trick you use to go places. and dont dive to look cool only when it calls for it, its gay when ppl dive just because and it can often get you shot.

I usually do a baseball slide or drop to my knee's most the time. Superman dive's are a last resort as I don't care to do them in recball. A lot of time's depending on the field going center I'll drop down and crawl for the most part as they have lost site of me.

Sometime's going left or right depending on the field I'll slide into a bunker, drop down and start crawling to the next to let them think I slid and stayed in the bunker behind me.

i like superman dives because i worked on them alot and it slike second nature and i can do it without any pain now. sometimes i like to basball slide in and plant my cleats in the ground and it sorta pops you upright into your bunker and your ready to shoot.

If I superman dive it usually mean's I'm already extremely low to the ground or I'm going into a really small snake with no end bunker's on it. Any other time I avoid it as it take's me longer to get back on track unless I plan on crawling.

well, usually like off a break if i go snake i'll go kinda in a curve to it and behind a line of bunkers so i have a place to stop if i have to. (it makes sense in MY mind) I always superman into the snake off the break cause it gets me lower. If i'm bumping to the snake and it has an end bunker i'll slide on my knees into it. Then crawl when i decide to move up. If i'm not goin snkae of the break i usuall walk sideways and shoot till i'm behind my bunker then move forward to it, using the angles.

Yes i know this probobly doesn't make sense.

Well, I look at it in two or three different ways. First of all, I always try to use the bunkers as cover, so I will zig zag and cut then move up if at all possible. If it's a long way to go - I go directly to it.

If it's a tall bunker to the left or right of me, I'll sort of slide with my hand in front and on my side, but not really full body contact with the ground but ONLY if it's hot (lots of fire happening.) Otherwise I just run to it.

If it's in front of me and at least my height (I'm short - 5' 6") I'll run to it while squatting, or rock star slide - badly. More than likely it'll be a baseball slide though. If it's shorter than me, I rockstar it - again, badly!

The snake, zipper, off-side dorito, castle or whatever is there, I look to see if there's a bunker somewhere near the end of whatever and I shoot for that bunker (see previous slides I use.) Then, I can just dive (superman) without much damage to myself or any of the standing structures.

I only run to the snake and superman IF there's no other way to do it and if the ground is sand. Soft sand. Loosely packed sand. The kind that protects all the jewels and stuff that may end up buried in it...Don't look for me to do that too often...

I prefer to superman dive I play front/snake mostly and I find that the superman gets you low on the ground and you are already in position to crawl. If entering the snake from the end I will dive early and crawl the 10 or so feet to make it to the bunker. I rock-star every now and then too. But once you have mastered the superman and can cradle yourself going to the ground you are all set.

yea diving is not my specialty. sliding on yuor knees hurts less if u dont land the ruight way. even tho it doesnt get u low its good for getting behind the doritos and cylinders. but before u start supermaning u have to practice bacing urself so u dont get the wind knocked out of you.

I've got one field in Kentucky that I absolutely will not dive on. No other reason other than the Kentucky red clay! Ground is hard as a rock! I watched one guy (who was trying to look good in front of spectator's) attempt a superman and once he hit the ground it was a slam and he stopped dead in his track's! That's no fun!

I pretty much rock star slide excluively. I have no idea how to baseball slide, but I really need to learn.

If I'm playing the snake, something has gone seriously wrong. If there's no pillow or stand up at the end of the snake, I avoid it.

Yeah im not much of one for sliding, I play alot of back. But if I need to slide, it's usally a baseball/soccerish, because thats the only slide a practice often, and thats at baseball or soccer practice/games

I do a lot of superman dives. A lot of times it isn't even a dive. I'll just drop to the ground and crawl real quick up to the bunker, if I'm running straight at it. If I'm heading to snake its a full dive. A lot of times if you are running to a bunker wide you can drop down and crawl quick without being able to be shot. Running to corners I baseball. If I'm running forward and want to shoot immediately, I rockstar. And if I've gone crazy I don't slide or dive at all. I just run thru blasting fools. :dodgy:

Man, I may have to change my sliding technique, at least at our field! I think I wrenched a knee pretty badly today during practice. Not enough to go to the hospital, but enough that I know I'll feel it tomorrow morning!

Watch out on the rock star slides on rough terrain!
