Hello. I know most of you don't jump off swings, but for those of you who do, you can do plenty of different tricks. Before I start, I want to thank my friends at school who showed me how to do these. Oh, and I am not responsible for ANY consequences that may occur. Enjoy.

Step 1: The Regular Jump
Any jumper should know how to do this one. Start to get a pretty good swing going, then when you are half way between at the ground and the top of your swing, push off with your hands.
Step 2: The Hover
This one is easy too. Get a good swing going, then wait till you are a little bit higher than the ground (going up). Now jump off and you should be barely hovering above the ground (2-16 inches).
Step 3: The Ground Smasher
This one is definitely not for people that are scared of heights or possibly getting hurt. First, get as high as you can. At the point where you are highest, just drop yourself off. Always remember to bend your knees as you take impact with the ground.
Step 4: The Fakeout
Even though this is technically not fully jumping off a swing, it can be very dangerous. Get a good swing going (but not TOO high), turn out by pushing off with one hand but holding on with another. You should be turned out and coming back down.
Step 5: Please Add On!
