So... recently, I cocked up a big air and did a 720 front-spin... now I can throw down double and triple rotations easily!

BUT

Can NOT do a sent-kite, decent-air SINGLE front rotation... they always end up at least 540s :( pops not using the kite, I can do 360s fine...

Is there a trick to doing front rotations with a good height, and not flailing around like a spastic to stop the second rotation?

Tighten up you feet I bend my knees and look where you're landing...that should do it.

I'm assuming you're not using your board to initiate the rotation :)

hahaha, funny you are saying it! It took me longer filming 360s than 720 and 1080 for filming Airstyle!

You just need to do 180 rotation, and then let the kite pull you forward for the rest.

I hope this helps.

I generally go inverted when doing front rolls and I find that it slows me down. Also taking your back hand off will help slow the rotation.

Oh, the heads that turn! Well, soloshots anyway. Nice!

That's a whole lot more effort than I usually feel like putting in :D I'll give it a shot though! Next time we get some wind :(

@taut - you mean spinning the board or launching off it?

Click on the first link, I don't know why the whole film is the post.

The first link will show me doing a front roll.
