This is a short video discussing the steps of throwing a flatwater Phonix Monkey. The first step is to learn the crossbow double pump. Then you can move on to the pirouette while bouncing. This was the hardest part for me. After you figure out the balancing act of the pirouette while bouncing all you have left to do is throw a loop.
This move does not feel exactly the same as it does when you are in a hole. The main difference is that in a hole the paddle hitting the incoming water spins the boat into a pirouette. In flat water you have to spin the boat without the added help of moving water.
