How Do You Spin?

What kind of spin do you do? Do you come of the lip and your spin is just one solid consistant movement of you whole body or atleast thats how it looks. Or are you partial to the twist your upper body and whip around your legs kind of spin.

Personally I like the soild smooth spin but I was just curious who spins how?

Start from the top to the bottom. Spinning should be one fluid movement instead of looking like you have to whip it around. Chances are, if you have to whip yourself around, you're working too hard, and things can go horridly wrong.

keep it tight, keep it fluid.

ground it from the feet but start it from the head and shoulders....

the rest will simply follow.

Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!

I tend to go off of my toe edge and land with a nice face plant.

I still look like a robot trying to pull 360s off. My 180s are alright I like to think they look smooth lol... I ride goofy so I tend to favor clockwise rotations which I think for me are FS? Always get confused on shit like that.
