    Classically (that is, going all the way back to 2003 ) I think that's right.

    The classic I-spin.

    The classic Y-spin. (Rudy Galindo By the way, Rudy got in trouble with the USFSA for doing this move. Only ladies are supposed to pose for crotch shots.)

    But now everyone is coming up with their own variations. I don't know what to call Alissa's spiral , posted by MKFSfan.

    First, it's a spiral, not a spin. If she were holding her leg with the other hand it would by a Y-spiral. With that cross-hand catch with her leg behind her right shoulder -- I don't know what to call it, but it's pretty cool.
