Happy New Year, King Frog! Thanks (as always!) for your quick and helpful feedback!
Lifting my head on the pullout: Uggghhh; I forgot about that flaw while I was thinking about everything else! Thanks for the reminder; I needed that!
Pulling my elbows too far back: You're right; an old habit reared it's UGLY head! So, I will get right back on that; an easy fix, as long as I am thinking about it.
As for the kick, Bruce and I will work on getting some underwater footage and get it posted. Thanks!
