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.
