So show me what you are doing now my young grasshopper.
This was it! It was the swing leg all along. I was swining forward instead of brining it up and around. I didn't get it my first spin but it was abvious that brining my swing leg higher and around was going to work. I worked on the entry for a while then my first attempt I brought the leg up but dropped it in fromt again. Then finally I got it all the way around and kept my leg high with some knee bend. I got a couple of reveloutions on the edge my last revelotion stil ended up one on toes though, but the spin was set and I did not fall out.
