Bs 180 Fs 5?
okay so i think i have perfected my setup carver for FS spins. I'm throwing very consistent 3s but i'm having trouble spinning backside. i can do them off of little rollers and off of rails.

would the jump at :10 sec be good enough for a 540 attempt? biggest jump they got.
they sesh the jump in the video for a good 30 sec

okay scratch BS 180s lets talk BS 3s i just landed 30+ bs 180s today off the biggest jump

throwing a 5 off that would be pretty hard... it could certainly be done but youd need to spin really fast

yeah i've seen a guy almost get a FS 7 on it but they just built about a 20 footer and I feel like that might be too big?

540 on 20ft will be fast but doable.

A lot also depends on how wide your stance is and your skill level. 540's are possible on that jump, but the spinning would have to be quite fast. The shorter your stance the easier it is to spin. So if you put your stance closer and practiced spinning and balance, you could probably land some decent 5's. The 20 foot gap would be more practical to practice 5's because it focuses more on technique rather than spinning rapidly.

Be sure to wind up as much as you can going into the jump.

thanks for the advice guys the hardest part for my FS spins is getting the throw down. half the times it seems like i spin a little under 270 and have to throw a crazy shifty but hey it works :laugh:
