I found this stroke the hardest to do, so I thought I would share some technique tips once I got a win.

I was windmilling my arms pretty much vertically and once I got to the "push the limit" section and tried to go fast I would be left behind and drop from 1st to 8th. What I eventually realised was that the kinect picks you up better if your arms are wider. Rather than trying to keep them vertical, it works a lot better if you spread them out by about 30 degrees.
