I think they would be easier, but still not a good idea. You should be able to get a single flip on flat pretty easily if you're doing it right.

Anyone noticed 540s dont seem any easier off drops?

I'm off to film now. Goodbye.

Oh, and Spencer and Hugo, your not the only ones that have been taken for a girl, I had long hair past in the time, but short is soo better, it's way more comfy, and a lot less hot.

Cant think of much for 540 unispins, just figure out your hands so you dont let the seat go, and go for it.

As for catching flips early... try catching no footers early, its pretty easy. I guess just flip high and fast then pull up on the seat.

You don't let the seat go when you 540 unispin? I didn't know that was possible, unless you switch hands in the middle somewhere. I just spin it a little past 180 and let it go. Sometimes if it spins a little off axis it falls over.

I switch hands after 360 degrees, but I'm always in contact with it.

Just after 7 months of riding? Wow, I've ridden about the same time, but I'm not even nearly as good as he is. I can't do 2 meter drops, jump over 80 cm, do smallspins, 360s, do a 8 sets and stuff. I can do 1 m drop, jump 40-50 cm, 180s and clear 5 or 6 set. Yeah, I haven't practised much for awhile, but that's crazy anyway.

No, I've been riding for 9 months now, but this movie was filmed over 7 months. It's not that impressive, a friend of mine has been riding for 1 month and is about equal to me (I have to say, he has a really good teacher ). He will soon become the next World Champion I'm sure...
