Spin switch the opposite way??
do you guys do this? i normally spin to the left but when i ski switch i look over my right shoulder making me spin to the right, this also makes it hard to hit rails switch because i ride rails left foot forward. can you guys ski switch looking over both shoulders? or would i just have to learn to spin the other way so I'm blind when i first throw the spin?
I'm the same. I try to look over both shoulders now and spin sw left, it's really hard tho. Atleast we get a cheap advantage in comps when judges are like WHOA you spin unnatty switch.
I personally don't but almost all people I ski with spin right when switch.
It's pretty common but you can fight it by forcing yourself to look over the other shoulder too. Or just blender (but actually don't do this)
I just started doing switch tricks and I spin my natural direction but on rails I usually spin left on but for switch on i spin right so I land naturaly on the rail
this happens to me but i can do the other way just fine. I just kind of feel awkward approaching the feature looking over the opposite shoulder and i really feel like im forcing it. But, I can spin fine once im in the air. Its not all awkward like it is when i do unatty spins while riding forward.
I do this. I can force myself to spin normal switch but it is uncomfortable and my neck is too tight that way. however, you should learn them the natty way because once you get past 5s you need to learn them natty.
