Do a Fakie Big Spin

Hi, welcome to VisiHow. Today we're going to teach you how to do a Fakie Big Spin. Two tricks we're going to want to know when learning how to Fakie Big Spin are the Fakie Backside 180, and a Fakie Backside Pop Shuvit. Once you have those tricks down pat, we're going to put them together into our Fakie Big Spin.
Set up with the back foot the same way we'd do an Ollie at an angle with our front foot on the nose.
Use the ball of the foot to get a nice pop.
While popping the board, we need to scoop it, wind up our shoulders and spin 180 degrees.
When popping and spinning, the skateboard will spin like a Pop Shuvit and then we'll land on the board and spin the rest of the 180.
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. When we pop, we want to wind our shoulders up and spin 180.
While we are doing that, we want to use our foot to scoop the board so that it spins like this.
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.
