    Yep, just a layover. Nice layover though.
    I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.

    other move

    hi

    i'm gonna put this here as it's a related question...
    anybody know the name for the new spin that was very popular in the JGP this year. My friend's coach calls it the bum spin. The skater is in position as if centering spin then bends body over and grabs blade so that bum is in the air. I think its the most ungraceful position ever invented.

    I think that's the A-spin.

    Lots of people call it a "butt spin," but the polite name for it is an "A-Frame Spin."

    It's not new - Emanuel Sandhu was doing it when he was competing.

    Well, I don't agree.
    It depends on who does it: most guys don't have perfectly straight knees, nor they keep both legs on the same plane.
    When Sandhu did it, I think it was a piece of art.

    A lot of guys were doing it about 4-5 years ago...we jokingly called it the "where's the beef" spin, because they all looked like they were checking out their crotch. Thankfully we didn't see it much the following year.

    Natalie Krieg did the A-frame way back in 1992 (and probably earlier):

    As a side note, props to her own "pearl":

    and her pearl-Biellmann-pearl-Biellmann:

    And I believe Krisztina Czakó did the A-frame as well in the mid-'90s?

    In 1984 Kay Thomson of Canada did the inverted camel into a back inside layback. Beautiful and amazing, and not done by anyone else.

    At 1:15 one of the greatest combo spins EVER!!! And a triple Lutz in 1983!!!

    Unrelated, but does anyone know what the name of the spin variation done at 1:27 in that video is? It's like, a cross-behind-backspin. I can't find anything on what its called or how to do it, I really want to learn how but don't want to teach myself for fear of bad technique....

    It looks like she's still on the back outside edge, but WOW! I have never seen that, that is so cool!
