Hi, I’m Tim Phang. I’m 23 years old. I’ve been skating for about 12 years. I’m from Arlington, Virginia which is right
outside of Washington, D.C. I’m now sponsored by Universal Skate Design,
and I’m going to be talking to you about rollerblading. Spins while rollerblading are measured in
degrees, so if you start out going forward, and land backwards, you’ve done a 180. If you start out going forward and then spin
all the way around to forward again, you’ve done a 360. Spins are a very important part of skating. You’ll notice that there are a lot of people
who do spins over gaps or onto grinds or out of grinds, so as soon as you’ve mastered the
basics of jumping over an obstacle or jumping onto a grind and landing the grind, you should
practice doing spins into and out of your grinds, and then also spinning over obstacles. Another great thing to do while you’re spinning
is learn how to grab. There’s a number of different types of grabs,
but they help to add a little bit of style to your tricks. They also make it a little bit more challenging. Spins of course don’t stop at the 180, 360
or even 540. There’s a lot of people who are doing 900s,
1080s, 1260s. So when you get more comfortable you should
start trying to spin a little bit further. A lot of people spin only over one shoulder
or to one direction, but it will be really helpful to you later on if you learn to spin
both ways. So I would recommend practicing doing 180s
both to the left and to the right. Once you master the 180, practice doing a
360 to the left and to the right. You want to be careful when you’re practicing
spins. At first, you’ll be able to do them, just
off the ground. So a 180 or a 360 can be performed just off
the ground. But once you get up into the hire numbers,
you’re going to need a good ramp, probably, to practice off of.

    when you start learning how to spin, i recommend to learn them on flat ground first before going on ramps, because for example when you learn a 180 on a ramp you tend to tilt a little bit to the side you spin to and when this happens it will ruin the spin on flat ground also. just a little tip.

    This video in a nutshell:
    A 360 is a complete turn. People do them because they look cool. 540's exist as do higher numbers. You may need a ramp to do them.
    I can now do a 540 right?

    *A complete spin, not turn. A turn would be 90 degrees, a 'turn around' or 'U turn' would be 180 degrees. A spin would be 360 degrees.

    please do remember that there are some people who have no idea what spins are, for example ErdnussKeksXD. He dint know, maybe because he is a little kid, maybe no one has ever showed him, idk. But for some people this information is very helpfull. If this is not the case for you, then maybe this video isnt for you, and if it isnt for you then go search for something else on youtube.
