This seems to be a trick you a ton of people doing these days. I think they look pretty cool. Any tips on edge type and how to throw these?

Kyle Gash's post today made me think of this trick again.

Nobody? Maybe this is easier than I think but mentally I have a hard time turning my back to the direction I'm going like that and then trying to pull it back.

Making sure you edge all the way up and through the wake will make these much easier because there will be more line tension to pull back around. Can you do BS 1's?

Eubanks, it's just like any other spin trick. Pull the handle around your body and turn your head to look in the direction you want to rotate, then move everything back. The hardest part is getting used to turning your head to look away from the direction you're traveling in. Scary at first.

You can learn it grabless and keep both hands on the handle at first.

I've been doing these for long time. I suck at spins but find these very easy. Take a hard progressive edge and wait until you completely left the wake. Once in the just turn your back shoulder and back heal away from the boat. The nice thing about these is you can slowly increase the amount of your shifty each time and still be able to land them. I usually don't even start the shifty until I have almost peaked in the jump

I can't spin to save my life, but for some reason, love a good indy shifty and boot them way into the flats. For me, I take more of a seated approach, and once I leave the wake I go for the grab, then just let my body drift backwards. Put the handle behind your back like you're going to pass it, but just hold the grab. It's kinda strange at first, and as Ryan said, you're not going to get turned all the way around the first time, but just let it drift back. Eventyally you will get to the point where you can look at the wake/lake behind you. When you're nearing the water, it's pretty easy to spin back to normal for the landing.

Start slow letting them drift back, then as that gets comfortable, go a little further and a little further. If you can turn your head and look in the opposite direction of the boat, it helps the rotation, but make sure you are comfortable with the drift before doing this (but it does make them look sick!)

It does help to be able to spin back side though you will be able to throw it bigger and be more comfortable with it
