Mute is on the toe edge rights?

Thanks bro! You dont even have a clue how much that hypes me up.

Never done it just trying to visualize the motions...
Seat belt? I still dont think I can do those. Never tried but what could hurt?

Mute is front hand between your bindings toe edge, this is going to drop your lead shoulder and help you tuck your head down for the rotation and spot your landing.

I know about the counter rotation, I still don't find it hard. The first 7 i learned was back melon. This goes back to the point about doing a grab that you are comfortable with you don't need all this logic bs.

Maybe i just have something for melons haha

Mute and stale on backside spins, indy and melon on frontside airs are probably the most natural. Hell, if I just straight air a stale, for example, all I have to do is look backwards and my body counter-rotates a backside 1 even if I didn't set up for it.

Agreed ^ I just think Indy is easier because it tucks your body and allows yo to spin quicker.

All those grabs would tuck your body if you are spinning with them.

Ya, I just do my Indy's better. I have trouble with backside grabs. To me they seem uncomfortable and make you have to reach more. With Indy's I just lift up my legs and the grab comes to my hand. It could be just me though.

Thunder - try a Mute, its just a front hand Indy basically, you will be surprised how easy they are and they look steezy with a FS shifty and really tuck you for BS spins. Try it now and look under your back shoulder, then try indy - the indy will make it so your shoulder hits your chin, but mute opens it right up.
