I NEED HELP LEARNING HOW TO CORK/GRAB/STEEZE MY SPINS.
basically i have started throwin 3s off smaller kickers, and i want to start hitting 5's and corking and throwin grabs with em. any tips?
look at your heel when u spin, thats how i cork
dont you hate it when you read shit your not supposed to?
thats whats up
go off bigger jumps and throw the same 3 and it will turn into a 5
then throw harder and instead of across thrown over your shoulder behind you
start pulling your knees up to your chest during your spins. Once
you've got that, go for the grab. I learned mutes first, but I'd say
start with safetys. Make sure your grabs are at a point where you can
just reach down and grab without really thinking about it during
For 5s, don't think about them like 360 + 180,
or you'll stop at 360 every time. It's a lot easier to think of 5s as
180 + sw 360. It's also easier to hit a bigger jump than try to spin faster on a small jump.
yeah i think i just gotta grow the nuts. i dont know why im pussin out on bigger kickers when i know i can bring the spin around on smaller ones.i guess i just gotta throw it. also whats the difference with throwin spins out of a pipe?
remember that as long as you commit, most crashes dont hurt as much as you think theyre going too. its just getting over that mental block.
good luck bro.

un like alot of sports when you fall skating it hurts like shit asphalt dosnt care but snow it gives way and absorbs impact unless its ice
learn on trampolines first. thats how i did it and it helps you alot. you at least get the feel for them, and tramping is the shit
Hey thnxs for all of the help u guys i was just about to start a thread like this

yeh that really helped me thanx alot
I'm kinda in the same situation, I got my first five on a jump yesterday. I just threw a fast 360 and when I saw my landing I just kept spinning.
If I'm spinning to the left, what grab should I throw with what hand to help.

Spin and try to read the bottom of your skis when your at 90 degrees
well for corks, i learned by just carving up the lip like you are turning. then drop the shoulder, look at your heel. for grabs i found i learned criticals first. then i started doing 3's with true tails. you just gotta kinda cross the skii and bring it to you, and then once its grabbed its easy to pull it bigger. i find mutes really akward to spin with :S i think its cas you gotta lean forward.

if you are grabbing make sure you get the spin set before you grab. you might also want to spin faster than you would with a regular spin because reaching for the grab will draw some momentum.
having fun isnt hard - when you've got a library card!
i throw a mute that is like grab right ski with left hand and it helps a lot...
