You are wrong. The SA videos used the old CASI terminology for a while (possibly still do), but the concepts are not what he describes - the SA guys are talking about 'anticipatory counter' where the board 'follows' the upper body around. There is no counter-rotation of the upper body.
Actually counter-rotation is a legit technique for creating rotations 180 degrees or under and I know firsthand that Nev teaches counter-rotation.
In regards to spinning off a jump you typically don't use counter-rotation, but you use counter-rotation all the time for certain 180s off rails, boxes and for shiftys as well.
