I'm trying to make a master list of spins because its fun.
I recognize 99% of spins I see, but there's a few unusual ones that I'm not sure if they have official names or not.

CURRENT LIST:

  • Upright: 2foot, 1foot, scratch spin, back scratch, headless, layback, haircutter, sideways/leaning spin, biellmann, pearl spin, "Y"-spin, "I"-spin, shotgun spin, crossfoot (or corkscrew) spin, A-frame,
  • Sit: standard sit, back-sit, cannonball, pancake, tuck-behind, broken leg, flying sit, death drop
  • Camel: standard camel, back-camel, catch-foot, layover, donut, flying camel, butterfly, illusion, stars (or windmills),



"A" frame spin - hate it because the figure skater's butt is up in the air. looks dumb in most cases.

1. What is this spin called? I've been calling it the "pretzel" spin.
pretzel spin - dont really like this either because it doesn't look "elegant", it just looks like contortionist yoga.

2. Is this just a layover with a broken leg? Or called something else?

3. This one reminds me of a shotgun spin, but it's too low. Does it have a name?

Feel free to add more spins to this list! Even if you don't know what they're called! Show us a picture or video of the spin!
I'm trying to find spins that are truly unique spins and not just the skater being creative with their arm positions.
