I'm rather glad you've thrown this together.
I know how to do this trick, but I don't really do a 'half-swirl' it just kinda goes a bit mental how I do it :P
Controlled, might I add... just mental.

You do it inwards, compared to me as well... I'll throw together a quick 40 second video soon of myself doing it how I usually do it and then again but THIS way :P

Awesome, thanks Void. I once tried to figure this one out, but gave up after some frustrated attempts. This should definitely make things easier :P

Thanks for this, Void. I'm a bit rubbish at these! I have a couple of days holiday so no excuses not to land this, really...

Cheers guys, good luck!

Thorny, I'm worried from your description that you might be doing something that wouldn't be allowed in competition. Yeah, throw up a video of your way, so I can check. I wonder if "a bit mental" corresponds to a full swirl instead of a half-swirl? (See Dave's vid of all full-swirl variations.) If so, you better learn the unmental version. :-)

Thanks to this video (literally), I now have the swirls down (along with some fun exits!). Now I just need to dig up the original swirl video and learn the rest of the ridiculous variations haha

Dang it! So close. Aeroplane part was off a little bit. Great video editing!

I love how Swirls and Half-Swirls are cropping up in loads of people's videos these days. :D

Saw that video just the other day was fascinated by it ,and it really got me playing around with this trick. Thanks void for posting that video tutorial a while back it helped me understand a little bit better how the physics work behind this maneuver
