rice.. put your foot in your front tire behind your fork. I just do grinds and stuff, so there isnt really a better one.. I do lots of fakie tricks on a sub-box near my house.. like a sprocket to feeble to fakie is like my favorite combo to do.

As far as airs go, one-footed seatgrabs. As far as grinds go, double-barspin rodeo grinds on ledges and one-handed one-footed pedal grinds on transition.

Moer?

And it would be a rodeo grind with a double barspin thrown in.

Oh, I read it wrong.. I thought you were saying you'd be spinning only a total of 360 degrees. If your tire is on the ground the whole time its a 540 half cab, but if you half cab and then actually do a 360 bunny hop, then its not a 540 half cab..

That would either be a 540 hurricane (if your tire is landing on the corner of the curb) or a 540 tiretap (if your tire is landing on top).

not close enough, basically over rotating a 360 tire tap at this point but I've landed 90* past and rolled backwards, not there yet...according to beerman its a 540 tiretap.
