Can someone shed some light how to do a 360 flat spin?  Need to know the setup and wrists/arms inputs and the best line length to execute this trick.

Thanks,

Rudy

Oh.  I thought it is a 360.  So, how do you do the 540?

With a quad, it's often called an axel, like with a two line kite, the kite spins around 360 degrees.

I'm not very good at axeling a quad, but the motion is somewhat like with a dually, a large pull on one side and plenty of slack on the other. There's a lot more to it. I'm sure someone who knows how to do it right will chime in.

There's a video out there somewhere...


Here it is..
