Figure Eight Whip Crack

This crack is the first combination whip crack you should learn. It allows you to easily learn how to join two different whip crack into a nice flowing rhythm. You can either start off with the forward crack and then flow directly into the reverse crack or visa versa. I would try starting both way so you can get a good feel for the combination. Typically you will tend to prefer one way over the other. One thing to keep in mind is, don't stop the flow. Use the energy from one crack to power the next one. Try doing just two cracks at first. One forward crack and one reverse crack. then when you get the hang of that try linking them into an endless chain. Once you get the hang of doing this set of cracks on the vertical plane at your side you can play with it on the horizontal plane over your head using the overhead crack.

Now lets try a variation of the forward crack that will make your ears ring. It's called the Coachmen's whip crack
