I do a tail grab and just tweek the shit out of it, works best for me. Just find a grab that you feel right with when start your spinning and work from there. Props to all the progress you have done this year, your videos are great to watch maybe you need to make an end of year recap.

Since he is riding goofy.
Wouldn't it be a seat belt??? front hand to uphill binding as this would lock the shoulders into the rotation and better allow him to keep his head looking into the rotation, allowing him to spin completely around???

Never done it just trying to visualize the motions...

Indy sounds pretty good. That or like a rocket air.

Other way around, stale or mute are the "easy" grabs for BS spins.
Mute is on the toe edge rights?

Seat belt? I still dont think I can do those. Never tried but what could hurt?

Mute or Stalefish for BS for sure is easiest.... good job on the 7's!

Melon? For a 7?

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.

Throwing a melon on a BS spin is actually pretty hard, putting your lead arm behind you counters a lot of the rotational force that you usually want to keep during a spin.
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.

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.
