What are "3s" and "5s"?
 
Hello everybody. I have been reading up on threads that relate to spins and I have come across the terms like doing a 3s or a 5s. I think I may have come across reading a 7s somewhere as well. Please kindly enlighten me what these numbers stand for. Thanks in advance. Cheeers.

a "3" is a 360, you can work the rest out ;-)

1's=180, 3's=360,5's=540,7's=720, 9's=900,10's=1080, fuck it too early for any more math ;)

oh yeah and 2's 4's 6's 8's usually mean faceplant

Yep. 270's, my specialty. :)

that could be a good thing if it's onto or coming off a rail! On jumps = pain.

Was learning back 5s this spring and did a perfect 450 edge catch straight to my dome. Helmets are a good thing in the park.

And two 2s make a 5.

Unrelated: Are you a Star Wars nerd?

Yeah, that's the ticket, yeah. Doing rails, yeah.

That's my story, yeah. :cool:
