I'm trying front bigs but my skate just gets hung up. Any suggestions?

vid? gets hung up how and when? What's the board doing? I'm DEFINITELY not the right person to answer this as I can't even do a shuv. haha But at least I can ask some questions to get more educated skaters to help you out.

No sorry no vid. When i pop the board it does like a 90 front shuv but then it just stops.

if it is going 90 its because you are throwing it while on edge.
make sure you flatten off and then throw it.


cut out
flatten off
hold the handle with only your back hand near your back hip
push your back foot down into the water while pushing it out with your heel like a fs 180 but with a little more from your heel
suck up your legs with your feet wide watching it spin
catch it in a normal riding stance but with a bit more pressure on your toes so you dont slip out
catch

Oh that's sick! The skate is asymetrical right?which side did your back foot siton to kick the big spin?I know that sounds dumb

thats one thing i hated about the sst. i cant stand asymmetrical. i would always make sure the tail was actually the tail. it felt a little different but its mainly in my head.
now im on a symmetrical board and it is so much more consistant

Mitch am i correct in saying the skinnier tail is better for big spins?

its amazing. the size is perfect. the stiffness of the bamboo core makes it react faster then any board, so no delay like a bilevel. also it snaps up and spins crazy fast and percise. i love everything about it. the edges are perfect as well, never hangs up, but tracks so great with no fins.
