Back camel spin
Does anyone have any tips in general for the back camel spin?
I can only get a few slow revolutions, and was wondering if anyone had any tips.
Thank you in advance
Yep. Don't go too far forward. My knees are purple from back camels.
Otherwise, I shall shamelessly eavesdrop on this thread because mine doesn't even really make one yet!
Don't rush the entrance edge and arms and be careful not to let your skating side drop. Also when spinning don't let the heel of your blade drag. The circles will be big and slow and you'll get too much outside edge.
At the rink. Again.
Stay down in your torso on the entry and use the slow knee rise like a forward camel to generate the spin.
My knees are rather purple also

Think long once you hit the camel position and keep your hips up. Same goes for the forward camel.
Thank you very much!
Any video tutorials?
