Thanks to an awesome friend spotting me and helping me learn the walk-over, I can now do the entire trick as I always wanted. I never thought I could do it, and now it's so easy!!



Trick can start one of two ways. As a cross ankle release like this:






Or as a cross over release like this:





From there I loosen my grip with my legs and slide down the pole until my hands reach the ground over my head in a hand stand like this:







Then bring one leg forward like this:





Push off with my hooked foot:





Land on the ground and stand up:




There were three tricks to the walk over which I had to learn before I could do it:

1. The hand stand should be as straight up and down as possible (I was trying to lean into the pole rather than be straight up).

2. Unhook the foot around the pole before I try to kick over with the other foot.

3. You have to push off to flip over (I was trying to just fall into the feet on the floor position rather than pushing off to get the momentup that would flip me over).
