FS or BS

Do you prefer spinning frontside or backside? Why?

I prefer spinning backside any day, I find it much easier to pop off my toes, I get more air and distance it just feels smooth.

Spinning fs kinda freaks me out because I'm not super consistant popping off my heels and I'm more prone to pre-rotating and scrubbing speed off the lip which can lead to knuckling out...

Obviously I need to spend more time spinning fs though haha. The odd thing is I find more people are scared to spin bs because they don't like the blind beginning of the rotation. Personally that doesn't bother me, nor does landing blind on a 180 but on a 3 you see your landing so nicely bs, fs its blind and if you under rotate it can be really messy.

so anyways... your thoughts??
