    I still think people who ride both mongo and do fs spins regulalry are riding the wrong way and should change their stance

    fs spins as in spinning the way your toes point? That's definitely the majority of people, and it looks fine, unlike mongo (not that mongo bothers me that much)

    When you spin frontside, you spin the opposite way of the way your toes are facing. The majority of scooter riders spin backside naturally.

    Does the term come from what's natural to the majority? Do they reference it that way because it's usually natural to spin that way much like how grinding with your heels facing the ledge is also usually natural? Because if grinding with heels facing is bs, I'd like to know why spinning the direction of your toes is also bs. And if heels facing is considered fs, where the hell is that terminology coming from?

    is it possible that the description is referencing the diameter of the bolt and not the head on top of it? Because I've been messing around with starnuts and the bolt that goes in them, and it takes a 5mm wrench to tighten one, but all hardware stores classify it as a 6mm bolt. If that's the case, what does that make a TILT bolt's diameter? Very confused with this finding.

    well, skating still oughtta have its reasons...right?

    Grinding spin terminology has to do with where the obstacle is. Spin terminology has to do with which way you spin.
    A front board will aways be in front of you
    A bs spin will always have ur butt where your bars are

    think of spins by whch way of your body is rotating the direction you are riding, backside your back is rotating out that way, front side your front is rotating out

    Do what you gotta do if you like spinning with your head looking all the way up do it. If you like doing 180's cross footed no one is gonna stop you. Unless you push mongo of course

    Grinds -
    If your foot faces the ledge, its front side

    If the back of your foot faces the ledge, its backside

    Spins -
    Say if you do a 90° spin flat

    If you spin 90 and land with your back facing in the direction you were riding (in this case forwards), its a backside spin direction

    If you spin and land facing the way you were riding, its a front side spin
