    A Frontside 360 is one complete rotation,
    bringing your back arm around and in front of you toward your Nose for the direction.
    For example,
    a regular footed rider who stands left foot forward
    would initiate a frontside spin by turning counterclockwise.
    Creating spin momentum comes from combining a series of body movements at the right time.
    This rotational motion begins in your shoulders and head
    Continuing all the way down through your core muscles
    and into your hips and legs as you extend into your bounce.
    Timing these movements between the point of contact
    and point of release with the trampoline,
    is the key to getting a proper initiation.
    When you initiate into the spin keep your chin high,
    looking just above your shoulder in the frontside direction.
    Keeping your chin high as you turn your head and shoulders into the spin
    will help your body stay upright.
    If your head and upper body are in an upright position, you'll create a stable flat rotation.
    After you pop from the trampoline and begin rotating,
    pull your knees up.
    This will engage your core muscles in the air and reconnect your upper and lower body.
    Having a strong connection between your upper and lower body,
    helps to maintain momentum keeping your spin smooth and stylish
    Keep your line of sight over your shoulder
    as you engage your core and your body spins 180 degrees.
    At this point in the rotation you will see the trampoline in the opposite direction you are facing on initiation.
    The landing on a Frontside 360 is what we refer to as a blind landing.
    This means you'll be spotting the trampoline behind you,
    as your body follows through with a spin completing the 360.
    Your line of sight is the key to landing a full rotation.
    If your line of sight is locked at a specific point in front of you,
    your body will be unable to rotate past 180 degrees.
    If you're looking down at the trampoline,
    it can put you off balance in the air.
    Get used to the feeling of spotting the trampoline behind you at a 180 degrees.
    You will be stomping Frontside 360s in no time.
