    Spins: difficult variations.

    Is this a difficult variation (of an Upright spin)?

    Or does only real Biellmann count as one? Have the new Rules changed anything regarding this kind of spins?

    That looks more like a difficult variation on a camel spin. I think a difficult variation on a upright spin would be swiching edges in a upright position, a Y-spin...maybe a headless scrach spin...

    Well, I think it's an upright spin. The pic comes from:

    I think switching directions also qualifies as a difficult variation...Shawn Sawyer does them a lot.

    I should have said 'a difficult variation of (the upright) position'. My excuses.

    I'm loving the name "Himmelspiruette" for "layback spin." Does it mean "heavenly," or just that she is looking up at the sky?
