ARS (Air Roll Spin)
To pull a solid one, you obviously need to be able to do the two basic ingredient maneuvers first- the el rollo and the spin. Okay, with that out of the way here we go.
Look for a bowling wave preferably with a peeling shoulder. Closeouts are harder to pull one on. As you scream down the face, look for a good section to roll off of. It has a pitching lip, and you need to hit that lip just as it begins to pitch out from the face with maximum speed.
Step #2- Project yourself as high up and far out as possible, and arching your head and back away from my board. At this point, you're thinking "spin" as you roll upside down. That's the point (upside down) when you want to pick up your feet and turn your board in the direction of your spin
Step #3- Now you're in full spin mode trying to keep your back arched and legs up while spinning as far around as you can get in the air. As the landing approaches, you're trying to keep your leading edge tilted up so you don't dig an edge on the landing.
Step #4- The landing will be somewhat hard or really hard depending on how high and far you've launched. If you're lucky, you'll land facing forward. More than likely though, you'll be facing backwards. Your gut takes the impact, and you'll want to maintain your spin position despite the urge to recoil.
Step #5- Continue the spin.
Step #6- At this point, drop your legs and reengaging your rail to continue down the line. And it's as simple as that..
