Hand Signals

You can learn in the air while you are in freefall! How? By watching and responding to the HAND SIGNALS of your instructor.
Some signals are designed to tell you how to adjust your BODY POSITION.
It is both normal and helpful to have body position reminders.

Having dive flow reminders is a sign that you need more practice or are mentally/emotionally overloaded.

We've included common signals most schools use.
