BS Bigspin

Basically a Backside Bigspin is a combination of a Backside 180 and a Pop Shove-It. So the board turns 360 degrees while your body turns only 180 degrees.

The Backside Big Spin is a little different from the normal Backside Pop Shove-It because with Backside Bigspins you need to scoop your tail more. Take your time and be patient because for this trick you need some time to get the right technique.

1. As with a Kickflip, place your front foot near the bolts of your front truck.

Your back foot should stand pretty much in the middle of the tail.

2. Once again, it’s important to use your shoulders to help your body do the 180.

Before you pop your tail, build up momentum with your shoulders by bending down and turning your shoulders slightly getting ready for the 180 motion.

3. When you pop your board make sure that you scoop the tail behind you hard enough so the board gets the full 360 rotation.

With your front foot, just slightly move it out in front of you and up in the direction that the board is going to go.

4. The way most people do the backside 180 is when your body is about 90 degrees in the air, try and catch the board on the bolts and turn with the board the remaining 90 degrees of your backside 180 motion.

5. The key to this trick is timing. At first you will probably have trouble landing more than 90 degrees but it just takes some practice.
