Ah. She's obviously doing a back twister and looking very graceful. Technically, her right leg should be straighter, but you can see how it accentuates the fact that in a moment she's about to swing her left arm powerfully across her midsection, pull her right arm behind her head and begin spinning around her vertical axis from left to right. My guess is this is a one and a half twister if it's the one meter board. Here you can be a little more loose and graceful than if it were a 2 1/2. She looks smooth.
