I'm having trouble visualizing what you are doing here. A prewinding generally is used in a way that helps you rotate the board in the direction of the unwind. So if I get what you are describing, you prewind, then when you release, you spin the board in the direction you prewind and opposite of the unwind rotation?
Thinking about it, the sequence of events may be slightly different than what I'm thinking (although the result is a frontside 180 on the snow). Try it this way:
I rotate my upper body CCW as an anticipatory prewind. Then I unweight my board slightly to prevent edge catch, and rotate my board CCW as my upper body stops
rotating. Result: riding in switch.
If I'd had the sense god gave a fencepost I'd have asked one of the guys to videotape it today on Cypress. We had 3 different people with cameras (ok, I was one of them...). Well maybe on Friday I'll get poutanen to tape one.
