The ‘Parallel Pointed Toe’

Glad I managed to get this. Actor mate Doug doing a shit hot ‘parrallel pointed toe’ landing manoevre – here he is, second from the left:

Check out the toes totally together – and pointed – serious look of concentration too. Don’t blame him. It’s pretty tricky.

Coming in to land – Wendy behind him totally fucked hers up. Hilarious. This is the really hard bit – keeping the toes parallel while bringing the wings round…

Slight tilt of the ankle, and here he goes – the perfect landing:

Lovely. Quick glance at the cam – check I was still watching. Jesus.

Shame I didn’t manage to get the rather OTT victory dance he did after!

    Any chance you can catch one of these on a camcorder next time? Looks great. I wish I had wings sometimes.

    Excellent landing manoevure – Doug is obviously a pro and quite right he should be checking out the cam to see if you caught it.
    The water scene has prompted me to remind you about the invitation (i’m sure – vaguely remember sharing a throwaway and tinny with you in the city) I gave you to visit the good folks down here in sunny southend.

    Beautiful landing. Some pigeons dont bother to be graceful anymore, and just fling themselves to the ground any old how

    Snowflake t.A.G.: Camcorder is a good thought – as is the idea of a gorilla with wings!
    Your pal Bri

    Essex Girl: A trip to Southend sounds well cool. Heard there’s some serious seagull action down there tho… Is this a date?

    Elf Mandinio: How’s Trev on the landing front. Suspect it’s more of a ‘plop’?!

    Hahah a ‘plop’ is right. Can’t remember the last time he flew. Lazy bastard. Well,flew without the help of a plane (on his jaunts) that is.

    Elf Mandinio: Take a pic of Trev trying his landing technique and I’ll be happy to post it!
