Sometimes we get sad about things and we don’t like to tell other people that we are sad about them. We like to keep it a secret. Or sometimes, we are sad but we really don’t know why we are sad, so we say we aren’t sad but we really are.—Mark Haddon, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time (via bl-ossomed)

Pairs Skating Elements: Side-by-side jumps and spins
Side-by-side (SBS) jumps and spins in pairs skating are more or less the same as in singles skating, except both partners do them at the same time. (I recommend you read the jump and spin guides for singles skating first, because they already cover the same basics used in pairs.) They are abbreviated on protocols the same way as in singles protocols (ex. 3T for a triple toeloop, FCCoSp4 for a level 4 flying camel combination spin). Synchronization is important; if the jumps/spins are not synchronized, the team will be marked down on grade of execution.
One solo SBS jump is required in the short program and two sets of jumps are required in the free program. Of the two sets in the free, one should be a solo jump and another should be a combination or sequence. If one partner “pops” their jump (doesn’t do the planned number of revolutions), the lesser number of revolutions will be applied to the entire SBS jump. If one partner falls, the team gets a 1-point deduction. If both partners fall, they get a 2-point deduction.
SBS spins are always combination spins; ie. they must include more than one basic spin position (upright, camel, sit) done in sequence. Depending on the season, an SBS spin combo or a pair spin (we’ll get to those later) is required in the short program. An SBS spin combo is always required in the free skate. SBS spin levels are assigned with similar criteria as those used in singles skating (ex. number of revolutions, variations in position, change of foot, change of edge).
