Default FS 180 Spin, off what edge?

Hi all,

So this season I would like to try and introduce some spinning into my jumps.

I figure the FS180 is a sensible trick to start with.

After reading some guides I'm still a bit confused as to what edge I should be spinning off from?

I ride regular and picture the trick as follows;

- Ride along with equal and steady stance.
- Begin to pre-load the upper body in the opposite direction to which I wish to spin, so for me riding regular that would be clockwise for a Frontside.
- Remembering to keep tension built up separate from the lower body and board.

Now here is where the confusion starts.

- Unwind the upper body whilst simultaneously jumping off my toe-edge?
- Lead with the head looking over the shoulder.
- Land switch.

Taking off the toe-edge seems odd as leaning onto toes is against the direction of spin?

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
