Default 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.

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.
