    A really good way to practice Fakie Big Spins is to pop and spin the board, but only catch it with our front foot to guide it around and stop it

    After practicing popping and spinning a couple of times, and we're comfortable with spinning with our front foot, we can try jumping with it
    .
    Another trick that is useful to know when learning Fakie Big Spins is Fakie 360 Shuvs. We don't have to know how to Fakie 360 Shuv, but it is helpful.

    Now, we want to set up with our toes on the nose of the board
    .
    That way, we can get a nice pop underneath the ball of the foot.

    Then pop

    While we are doing that, we want to use our foot to scoop the board so that it spins like this

  10. 10
    When it spins, we are going to spin with it, 180 degrees
    .
    So the board will spin all the way around, and we will roll away in the opposite direction.
