Can anyone help me how to learn to 360 unispin? I can land 180 unispins 98% of the time and i still cant land a 360 no matter how hard i try. I am not afraid of knackering myself(well thats what i tell myself) and i keep landing on the ground. If people can post movies of them 360 unispinning where there hands actually are and if u land seat in or out and all that. Thanks

Well your one eero-poika helped a little. I couldnt really see ur hand positioning and i think you spin the opposite direction to me. Thanks anyway. I'll keep trying. Can you also please repeat it in slow motion if you can so I can see the whole flow of it. It's just the way I learn. Thanks

Well now it's in slow motion.

It's still the same clip. About my hand position: I spin the uni counter clockwise and, as you can see, two-handed. My right hand is on the left-back side and my left hand on the right-front side of the saddle. So my hands are "crossed" to help the uni spin faster. I also prefer taking my hands off the saddle while in the air. As you may have noticed, I don't hop that high from the pedals, just high enough to get my legs off the way. Once again, I hope this helps. :)

:) as far as I know, no. I tried to make everything as clear as possible in my explanation earlier on this thread.
