A crooked spin is merly an extension of a usual spin. i.e.: if you can do a normal 540, you should try a crooked 540, wich means you spin 540 but with an angle of (more or less) 45 degrees in the air. Try this: When you're about to pull the (i.e.) 540 (clockwise) and you've prepared to make the "swing" move, try to swing from your left upper side to the right lower side (the move is kinda like bio, but your NOT flipping over)

    lol this trick is funny i do it when i don't mean to. I just learned how to 540 down a stair set. But sometimes i go inverted if i spin to hard, and it goes almost corked heh. The only tips i have for this, is act as if you are going to do a normal 540. Depending on what way you spin if you spin to the left put alot of shoulder power into the spin and try to make your feet almost parrel. The spin is easy but its hard to land it try and get straight as quick as you can and you should have it, after a few attempts.

    It's easy to land if you don't throw your legs out, I throw a slight curve into my approach and let my body compensate for being off center. I first did this by complete accident. Practice these 360, it doesn't take long to learn.

    i don't get if you're spinning kinda tipped to the side, how do you right yourself?
