    So when we're basing (level 2 stunting), the other base (side) (i'm main) seems to have sweaty hands, and so when she tick tocks and i catch the left foot, its like drenched, so she completely slips off my hands. We both have chalk on our hands, and it just won't work. How can i help her so she doesn't sweat so much? We can hit this skill, its just its so slippery when i catch her, its like she jumped in a puddle before we started stunting.
    Any Advice?

    My advice is that you should see if it's the chalk that's bothering her. My stunt group had the same problem , but it was me. I just needed a new kind of chalk. See if your team can invest in some different chalk . Hope this helps.

    No the chalk isn't bothering her. She doesn't have any problems while basing, its just that her hands are making the flyers foot wet, and it just slips off my hands. Our chalk is good, just when it gets wet, it obviously isn't gonna work as well

    I'm not sure if this would work but, there are roll on antiperspirants (not deodorant) that she might try on her hands before practice. Otherwise, I Googled "sweaty palms" and there are lotions made for this condition but, they aren't cheap.
