If you spin the unicycle the opposite direction of your jump, that means you are doing an inward trick. An inward smallspin is where the unicycle does a 180 one way and you do a 180 the other way so you kinda do it like a 360 unispin.
You’ll have to twist the other way. But seriously, it’s not that hard. You should be able to 180 and blind 180 pretty easily. I can 360 my natural way and 270 blind. I don’t really find big spins etc. a problem. I’m like you, I have to twist blind for big spins but I find inward tricks more natural.
Well first of I typed “hand positioning?” at school when I was meant to be doing some desigining and the teacher was nearby so if I got caught I would of been in 5hit so I needed to get it done fast.
And I put “???” because I don’t quite know what SkierAlex quite meant by “normal”.
Back to the topic…
When static hoptwisting with no unispin at all, do both hands stay on the saddle in the position when about to 180 unispin, and then you come round with the back hand catching it so your hands end up holding the tip of the saddle?
Any different when adding a 180 unispin or 360 unispin?
And do your hands ever come off the saddle?
