    The guide for most of the unispin tricks are the same, but spin faster. I too can't really be bothered writting a detailed description, but I may do in the near future.

      180 Unispin.

      Well, lets start shall we?

      (Do not attempt when wearing no shin guards, shoes, and when you in your room still awake at 5am.)

      Step one:
      Get your shin guards on, cause they will give you confidence, and protect you from getting painful 8 inch gashes on your legs.

      Step two:
      Get your uni.

      Step Three:
      Mount your uni. Get into your jumping position, mines left foot forward, right hand on saddle, then move to SIF.

      Step Four:
      Find your hand position. What is comfortable to you, and make it the easiest to rotate your uni with. I rotate my uni to the right, so my right hand, is on the handle, holding more on the left side, and my left hand is holding the back of the seat, on the right side.

      Step Five:
      Jump off your pedals, either bringing your feet out to the side, or straight up. Right as you do this, spin the uni 180 degrees. Land on the ground, don't try to land it just yet. Just keep doing this to get used to jumping off and spinning the uni.

      You may also learn to do no-footers, just to get used to jumping off, and landing back on the uni.

      Step Six:
      Now lets try and land this. You know how you hold your saddle, and how to spin it, you have your gear on, your used to jumping off the pedals and spinning the uni, so the next part is to land.

      Instead of landing your feet on the ground, like in step five, aim them for the cranks.

      Practice, practice, practice. You don't really need to have the uni leave the ground for a 180 unispin, just your feet have to leave the uni, and stay out of the way when its spinning. It may take you a few days to get this trick, or a few minuets, just don't give up.

      Let out a loud "Yes!!!" once you land one.

      -------------------------------------------

      Your probably thinking that this guide sounds too simple and no enough detail, but 180 unispins are simple and don't need much detail. You just gotta go out and try them and not be afraid to fall a few times.

      I would of gotten pictures of the spin, but my webcam sucks when its dark in my room, and seeing how its past 5am, I don't wanna wake anyone up by doing a unispin in my room, nor do I want to cut my feet up.

      Once you have the 180 down, just spin the uni harder and faster and get a 360, then try a 540 and so on and so forth.

      Enjoy!!!

      Feel free to add any other advice to it, but to anyone riding this, don't pay so much attention to it, cause really all it is is, jump, spin, land. =p

        Thanks for the tutorial Jerrick, it was good advice.

        However, for all of you out there trying to learn uni spins, please don't do it barefoot!

                  Do you (by you I mean the people who can do this already) recomend learning with plastic pedals or should i just keep my bulletproof's on?

                    my biker friend gived me a advice this week

                    i was trying the 360 unispin but it was really hard to land it

                    he said that one of my foot was going up and the other was going to the side..
                    so i was never landing the 2 foots at the same time

                    when he said that i tried to pull my 2 foots to the side and whala! i landed it
                    and in the same day i landed 8 360 unispin.
                    in 2 hours of training i landed more 360 than i ever landed in my life.
                    and iam training the 360 for 3 months i think
                    2 times i landed 2 consecutives

                    thats was a nice advice

                      despite being from florida it seems like english is your second if not third language. be helpful or get out.

                        For 180s, you dont even have to take your hand off the handle, same with 360s, and I think I saw someone do it with a 540.

                        If you are taking your hand off the handle, so you have to catch again when your landing, just practice like on step 5.

                        Jump, spin, catch the seat the right way, land on the ground. Once your used to catching the seat like that, go for the landing.

                          i'm looking for advise on how to do just that. spin the seat a full 360 and catch it in the right way. if it helps, i hop left foot forward, and for unispins i put my right hand on the front and left hand at the back but on the opposite side. and for 180s i (of course) don't let go.

                              Well you should. I bought 661s yesterday FINALLY (after like 3 years) and my jump increased by like 2 inches immediately. Shinguards give you guts.
