Lightbulb Figured out spinning butters

I posted something in the SA thread, but figured I'd put something here as well for anyone else who is having the same trouble with spinning butters as I was having.

Trying to do a frontside spin from tailpress, I'd get around 180 degrees then the spin would stall. Turns out I was transferring edges too late. I'd wait until the 180 degree point, which seems logical but is wrong. By transferring edge a little early I was able to continue the spin for as long as desired, or until I got so dizzy I fell over.

Anyway, hope this helps someone.

I'm still trying to do the endless butter spin, but I stall at 360. I don't use any edge at all, I'm usually spinning flat on a nosepress. I guess I should be on an edge when I spin.

Like this thread.

I can turn about almost 180 degrees but then the fun is over, I'm not using my edges at all btw, should I use my edges just like rotating with my board flat?

Yeah, according to the SA vid, edges should be used just like with flat spins. I guess I've been doing it right automatically for flat spins, but butters take more conscious thought. I found that if I start transferring from heel edge to toe edge when I hit about 150 degrees, the spin continues all the way around. Once I get the rhythm, it just keeps going.

Then I get dizzy and it's game over.

Ah I get it, that makes sense to me! I was trying to do it with just rotating shoulders and hips, but with my edges I might get the full 360 degrees, that would be a nice start!

Thanks for the tip! I am still trying to do a complete 360 butter. I will try tip out at the hill next time.
