Tips for a Better Vertical Descent


A Vertical Descent is often the last impression judges have of your figures. Performing a great vertical descent can boost your scores. A good vertical descent should:

Descend smoothly

Descend evenly

Maintain alignment

Descend slowly

Maintain control


 8 Tips to perform a better vertical descent:

  1. Stay in support scull for most, if not all, of the descent.
  2. Feel the water slide smoothly up the legs.
  3. Gradually decrease the size and pressure of support sculls from maximum height.
  4. Keep arms and sculls out to the sides of the body.
  5. Relax the tension in the arms and hands gradually as height goes down.
  6. Scull with a very small range when height nears the ankles - or floating point.
  7. At about the floating point, rotate the arms so the palms are facing the surface and gently scull the feet underwater.
  8. Pause in the vertical underwater and do a neat back somersault to finish the figure.


  1. Rapidly transfer the arms overhead at the beginning of the descent.
  2. Use big support sculls.
  3. Scull in front of the body.
  4. Quickly release the tension in the arms.

Remember, this is the last part of the figure the judges see. Make it the BEST!

USA Synchro Polo's and Pullovers have been removed from the store due to lack of sales. We will do a sale on judges v-necks and polo's prior to esynchro Age Group Nationals. Look for more info in May or you can call us to inquire about availability. If you can amass an order of 10 or more we will be happy to fill it. 


esynchro has researched multiple shipping options and found that USPS is the best option for our company. However, the online application limits appropriate selection of shipping options by allowing the customer to select options that are inadequate for shipping certain items. In some cases we have decided to determine a flat rate for postage. For items that are not in stock at all times, it is noted that the item will take 2 to 4 weeks to ship no matter what shipping option you choose. In most cases we will still use Priority shipping after the item is produced. Our apologies for the confusion and we are doing our best to ship your orders in a timely fashion.
