D-Spin

D-Spin 720 from Canadian Freestyle Ski on Vimeo.

DESCRIPTION

  • The athlete must produce 360 degrees of back rotation, around the frontal axis and 360 degrees of twist along the longitudinal axis. The 360 degrees of twist is almost performed completely between take off and the apex point, and the body is off axis off the trampoline.

PREREQUISITES

  • 360 to Back Drop
  • Pull over
  • Arabian to back
  • Back full

PROGRESSIONS

  • 360 to back drop, pull over
  • 450 to back, 270 to feet
  • Arabian to back on a throw mat
  • D-spin to throw mat

COMMON ERRORS

  1. Athlete sets sideways instead of backwards.
  2. Athlete travels on the trampoline.
  3. Set too much back rotation.

CORRECTIONS

  1. Keep the head straight. Extend the body on the way up.
  2. Keep the center of gravity over the base of support.
  3. Extend the body longer on the way up. Keep the head neutral.

NOTES

  • D-SPIN IS SIMPLY A BACK FULL WITH A VERY EARLY CONTACT TWIST, WITH A ROTATION OFF AXIS ON THE TWISTING SIDE.
