Survey: Which rotation do you spin???
 
I'm noticing a weird trend with rotation, and i just thought that this would be the perfect place to investigate this.

So wich way do you spin?

Clockwise:
Regular backside
Goofy Frontside

counter Clockwise:
Regular Frontside
Goofy Backside


Im a goofy foot and i way prefer spinning backside and cab. (cab = switch frontside)
If you comment, please put down your highest spins in each stance...

Back: 720
Front: 540
cab: 720
SwBack: 360

in front 5s and back 3s the last 180 of the spin your front is facing towards the landing so its easier to spot it.

Yup, front 3s and back 5s have blind landings. You face uphill, or behind you upon landing. Once you land you turn your torso around to face downhill. I find that turning prematurely makes me over-rotate and spin once more upon landing. If I catch an edge in doing so it's similar to what snow-wolf posted. :D

Hmm, looks like my theory is prooved wrong.


Pooop, i though i was smart for a second.



anyways. Back5's are my fav trick by faaaaaar. I rotate my shoulders early then throw my board around and grab haaaaaard, at 270 i see my 360 landing and then i just keep my face looking behind me and stare at where I wana plant my toe edge.

Hell. I wish I could spot landings, but everything seems to fly by like a blur.

It just gets easier the more you do them. Everything goes by really fast when you first learn, but eventually you just get a feel for it. In all honesty, spins are easier if you get more air. You don't have to setup as hard or even put much effort into rotating. Landing is nice and slow and gives you plenty of time to spot. Not to mention they look sweet too. A slow buttery 5 looks better in my opinion that a jerky 7. The only problem with air is if you bail... It'll probably hurt more. More potential for injury.
