A few days ago I made a few good full 360 caspers, with an additional over the top 180 flip-over out. I decided to start pay a bit more attention to my caspers, and really try to improve their consistency. So I started this yesterday. I think that even after only one day of doing them a bit more and paying more attention to the details I’m getting better at them.
Right now I have 3 variation.
- Backwards to casper – flip over the top – land rolling backwards.
- Backwards to casper, but spin into it, and flip over the top while turning body and board 180 degrees backside, and land rolling forward (not returning from the same direction I came from). A Casper Big Spin.
- Backwards to 180 casper, flip back over the top, returning rolling backwards from the same direction you came from.
- 360 casper – sometimes can make – rarely – backwards to a full 360 spinning casper, flip back out. This is one I’d like to get better.
Here is #2 (below). Getting footage of these tricks is really helpful. I can see in this exactly what I need to change for the 360 version. In this particular one, I keep my weight leaning back the way I came, which makes it very hard to spin a 360, since my axis isn’t vertical. Will work on this next time.
