Frontside Bigspin

Frontside Bigspin

I started wakeskating because It was just something to do that would keep my time on the water fresh but every time I’d jump on a board I’d have endless fun! Next thing I knew I couldn’t stop thinking about wakeskating. It’s really addictive, probably because the smallest things can make your day (Like a nice clean Ollie or a smooth Shove-it or something technical like a Frontside Bigspin). What is also nice is that you don’t have to take beatings to progress.
    A Frontside Bigspin is basically a blend of a Frontside 360 Shove-it and Frontside 180, so if you don’t have those two tricks under your belt then go get ‘em.

1. Unhook, ease off of your edge and find a nice smooth spot to take off from.

2. Now pop into a Frontside 180 but at the same time scoop the tail of the board with your back foot to get the board spinning the 360 Shove-it.

3. Once you get up in the air keep your feet out of the way and watch the board spin.

4. On your way down catch the board with your feet and rotate that last 90 degrees.

5. Stomp it and ride out.

Common Mistakes
It’s pretty common to land this trick in the backseat so try to force yourself to lean over your toes a bit on landings. It will also help to take your front hand off of the bar just before you pop since this will help your body rotate that Frontside 180.

Next Step
When you get Frontside Bigspins dialed then try to use a piece of chop to help you take ‘em bigger, do them over stuff or you can throw them off of a rail.
