A Real Lutz!

I remember working with Nick Perna during a private lesson a while ago where he asked to see all of my single jumps. When he looked at my lutz, he said, “Well, you have a beautiful flutz.” Oops. I had been working hard at staying on that outside edge, but I know I tend to flip it when I get nervous. Hence the flutz during my lesson.

Well, I am happy to report that I executed a real lutz recently. Here is my photo proof!

Remember, I am a clockwise skater so my outside edge is at the top of the photo. I was so happy to see that I was on a flat rather than an inside edge when I took off to jump.
