Default Flat Spin Off A Roller?

Is the wind up and rotation movement for spins on flat terrain (flatspins) the same as it is for a roller with the exception of the edge, pop and hold? What will happen if I try a flat spin of a roller?

Worlds will collide. The center of the universe will collapse into a black hole and it'll be the end of life.

Seriously though, just try it out. Then come share your findings.

Ull land flat because u didnt pop to clear the knuckle. Maybe with 2-3x more speed than required u can land on the sweet spot, unbalanced and maybe off axis because pop with grab or holding legs up stabilizes you in the air. Just do it like it should be done, with pop from both feet.

Spinning on rollers is definitely the second easiest place to spin after the flat. You don't want to ollie off of them if you are going to spin though. Just approach the roller slightly on edge, jump when you get to right spot and spin. 180s are really easy on small rollers.
