    Can someone tell me what the "Hydrant Lift" is? Or better yet point out a video?

    I heard it mentioned on the Manley Woman Skatecast.

    Thanks!

    When the man tosses his partner over his head while skating backwards. He then turns forwards and catches his partner facing him.

    Here is a video. If you forward it to 2:20 you will be able to see it.

    No, "Fly High, Say Bye" was a variation on this that starts the same but she shoots through his legs and comes out again in front... (hope I'm describing it correctly...)

    I haven't seen that in years -- but the couple of times I saw them do it live got a tremendous reaction. I'd forgotten how quickly Isabelle rotated on the triple twist, and Lloyd was strong as an ox.

    This was one of the few B&E programs I really enjoyed. It was very creative and well skated.

    Thanks for posting. It has been a long time since I saw a L & I clip...it was their exciting tricks that first got me watching skating.

    I love that program. Nothing like a bit of drag skating.
