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

This desk is my hub of creativity. I really wish it was bigger. This is where I do all of the graphic design for my screenprinting company, clients, and band. I also record some of my musical projects and occasionally do some gaming.
