techniques: underwater dash
Used to cross large gaps underwater. Unlike the dash jump, this move doesn't need a lock on, so it can be done anywhere, as well as in any direction.
Start by holding L and a direction, then press B and hold R at the same time (this is the vital part). When the jump takes off, let go of the direction, but continue holding L and R, using your second jump whenever to increase distance.
- There are some variations that can be put on this move. For example, B can be held like the other buttons if you prefer. If you're dashing forward or back, you can also hold the direction even after the jump takes off (but not when going left or right; you'll just spin in circles then).
- This move only works without the gravity boost.
