I had a friend tell me that a proper d-spin is a 360 into a backflip. I always thought it was just some sort of cork 7 move.
Can someone clarify what needs to happen for it to be a true d-spin?
a d-spin is essentially a backflip 360. A cork 7 is a non-inverted d-spin. So, a d-spin is kind of a "cork 7" move. It most certainly is not a 360 into a backflip. You can kind of think of it as the amount of "flip" in the trick. Back full is flippier than a d-spin, d-spin is flippier than a cork 7.
