    Thank you Wayne, this is one I am interested in revisiting, it make sense what you said with the stretch, i dont see the floatiness but I am going to give it a couple of days haha.

    Thank you

    Good job Jóhann. The character and personality is clear.

    I only have some general comments about some of the technical things.

    At the moment there's a little disconnect between some of the pre-jump moves going into the actual jumps.
    What I mean by that is that getting into the stretch position to take off is a little slow, but then the start of the jump is good (fast). Which gives it a little bit of a pop.
    Try making the maximum amount of stretch be the contact frame (taking off and landing). at the moment it looks like it is the first frame in the air. I hope that makes sense.

    Then some of the other jumps feel a little slow and floaty.

    So to me, it looks like you just need to rest your eyes from this for a couple of days and then take another polish pass thinking about all the principals that you have learned so far on each of those moves.

    You're doing great on this one. Keep going.
