Default Re: dives and getting places

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

Default Re: dives and getting places

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.

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!
