I’m sure many have asked this question before, but after looking through the forums for a while, I could not find one. I have watched tutorials on youtube. I understand how to do the movement, but I am having a major problem. I can’t seem to jump off the pedals and land back on (w/o spinning the uni.) Has anyone had this problem? I don’t know if it’s just a mental thing or not. I wear pads, so I can’t get hurt, but something is still holding me back…
try just starting on the ground and jumping onto the pedals. then do it again and spread your legs farther apart. And you still can get hurt. I have been trying to land 360’s for a while and i wear shin and knee armor but i come down and hit my ankles on the pedals when i bring my feet in and they start bleeding.
This is your unispin bible:
It’s called a no-footer. And it’s totally normal to have trouble with it. Just start small. Do it seat-in, and just barely leave the pedals. In time, you’ll get more comfortable jumping higher off the pedals and landing back on. It’s difficult to jump straight up - and to jump with exactly equal pressure on each pedal.
Post a brag when you’ve got it.
Thank you everyone. That will really help. Mouse, That thread what I was looking for, thanks.
