I can't see my Sig when I post, but can imagine it. Toned down. Just Updated this membership, so I'm still adjusting this. Thanks for the notice.

I got nose roll-180s and flat ground spins no problem. I think my issues was starting to butter before I had any rotational momentum built up. I would just lean back and then try to spin. Never thought about starting a flat spin and then getting back in to the butter after the spin starts. That makes so much sense I feel like a gaper.

I have the AASI level 1 freestyle and when I took it a few years ago, it was really more of a clinic format than an actual exam. Which division are you in? I will se if I can dig up a manual in PDF format.
They do make you dizzy! I have got to the point with tail press 3s where I can easily get into the spin, BUT! I always drift to the right

Eastern Division. I have seen a manual or two, but they are past years and they all had different expectations. The site is kinda annoying to find stuff on, so I haven't tried super hard. Good to hear it is more of a clinic format. I'm just going from my experience during my Level 1 clinic, where there was one person taking the clinic/exam that could not ride switch. The clinic leader had to spend 20 minutes with him making sure he could do it to pass... I just don't want to be the one guy at the clinic that can't do one of the required tasks.
