Before you bigspin, you should first know:
-180 ollies (helpful)
The bigspin takes a similar foot placement as a frontside shuvit, but you will adjust your back foot to hit the tail at more of an angle. This will help you get the leverage necessary in order to spin the board.
There are three stages to understanding this trick:
1. Proper foot placement and scoop
2. Wind up your body to help the rotation
3. Keep your shoulders over your feet and trucks
The upper body will do a 180. Some people like to wind their upper body up to help them spin around.
Hey dudes, welcome back to the top 5's....these had to be put on hold for a few months because I was out L-I-V-I-N but I'm back and I'm stoked I get to bring these top 5's by such a legit one with BakerForLife.

Fpr now check out the return of top 5's with OG member BFL and leave some love dudes ! <3
For this Trick Tip Tuesday, Andrew and Lucia, the Angelina Jolie doppelganger, from GoSkate.com, teach you how to consistently land frontside bigspins.
The first step is getting the proper foot placement. You should have your feet in a similar position to the frontside shuvit except your backfoot should be positioned at slightly more of angle. (See the video for a visual.)
A proper frontside bigspin starts with leading your upper body in the turning.
If you are having trouble spinning the board all 360 degrees, you can try the bigspin off a curb or stairset. This will give you more time to spin.
Rob Dunfey, from GoSkate.com, teaches you how to consistently land 5-0's to fakie on a ramp.
Before starting this trick, you should first feel comfortable with:
Start on a small quarter pipe or bank ramp.. preferably 3 feet or smaller.
Things to remember:
-Keep your weight in 5-0 position
-Don't push your board out too far in front of you
-Sometimes it is easier to pivot from a salad than a 5-0 grind
-Don't put too much weight on the wheel outside the coping
