Just curious, and I know this is a stupid question regardless of the answer, but...

I'm not personally very interested in handlepasses, but I like to understand how things work. With the leash connected in the back and wrapping around one side of the rider, do you have to do the handlepass in the opposite direction so that you don't get wrapped by the leash? And then alternate directions for your next handlepass? Or does the leash somehow stay neutral throughout the maneuver, so that you can do multiple handlepasses in a particular direction, one after the other?

yeah pretty much if you have you leash strapped to a rope at the back then you have to flop it over your head depending on which way you want to spin, you just deal with it. some guys i know now are putting there jeash on the front hook and wrapping the whole way around there body so they can spin 7's i tried this and apart from not landing 7's it hurt my arse when i let go

you have to throw it over your head like switch313 told you
and you may take a leash that has a decent build-in swivel.

You can do two spins with a leash. You need to have a long leash and it should be attached on the FRONT. It should be pre-wrapped once in the opposite direction that you will spin, then when you hit a 7, it ends up wrapped once in the other direction. For the record, I don't hit 7s.

No 7's?! Shit man, I'm already doing 8's and 9's - whatever it takes. A lot of in's and out's and what-have-you's. Will go to 11 real soon.

Thanks for the explanations everyone.

just came to my mind:

not sure if anyone pulls it yet, but does anyone pass it in one direction, and then the other way around again?

HI,

Some riders can untwist out of a move, for ex: Back mobe to Blind.

yes but how does this solve the problem of the leash being wrapped in one direction? does it magically morph through your body because it has a swivel? dude go ride more you blatantly dont know what your chatting.................
