Natural Spin Direction v Front Rail Foot?
Just curious what the correlation is between peoples natural spin direction and preferred front rail foot. I spin left though am right foot forward which kinda disadvantages me for 2's on, wondering whats common.
Also to create some discussion is there any tricks you find easier unnatural? i.e I prefer spinning unnaturally from switch
Spin left, right foot forward is the most common. That's how isl spin.
This same thread with the same poll was made not too long ago, but whatever. I am far more comfortable spinning left, it truly is natural. Same with sliding right foot forward. But I can left foot kfed like its nothing, can only occasionally do a "natural" kfed because I have a difficult time spinning right on rails. But I cant right foot front 6 and right 5 small jumps. Skiing is weird.
Left spin, right foot forward, but I am more comfortable going right on rails than left.
i don't think i could do an unnatural 7 on a jump but i can front 6 (unnatural direction) which i find sort of weird especially since you have a lot less time on a rail
spin left, left foot forward
I spin left and go left foot forward. I really don't know any other people that do that. I can go right food forward on rails too but not as well, and its a little sketch doing urban set up rails too.
Twosevs and switch into my left foot feels so much more natural than coming into a rail spinning right to get on my left foot. I guess I just do a lot of switch ins and 270 ons, but its kind of weird.
