But the odd thing is, when you do a 360, leaning back is WAY more natural and looks better too.

You can do narrow donuts (360s) leaning into the lines, but it just looks (and feels) so lame, difficult to explain if you havent tried both, or seen it.

Leaning back in a 360 up in a steep wave, is the very best, your body gets fully horizontal while turning around, and it feels like riding a wave hard - nothing beats this feel IMO :naughty:

Maybe off topic, but still, sometimes you dont want to lean into the lines, as it feels "wrong" - but it makes tacks so much easier indeed :thumb:
