Jump Spin: Welcome to the Technical Figure Skating jump spin page. You can find AVI video clips of the most common flying spins in figure skating. A good flying spin is very impressive. Take a look at Boitano's death drop to see how big one of these things can be.
combo3.avi (660 kb) Jere Michael doing a flying camel spin. He also does an extrodinary sit spin with the free leg behind and back cross foot spin. Not only is this extremely difficult, but he does it with great speed and position.
Flying Sit Spin
fsit1.avi (260 kb) Brian Boitano doing a mediocre flying sit spin. It's hard to get good examples because almost nobody does these anymore.
axsit1.avi (585 kb) John Baldwin doing a flying reverse sit spin, also known as an axel sit spin.
dd.avi (3 Mb) Brian Boitano doing his trademark death drop. Nobody does it bigger than Boitano with the possible exception of Jozef Sabovcik. I realize this file is big, but it's such a spectacular move I decided to make the image larger than normal.
