Default Is there any benefit to performing a 2/3 axel

I'm not sure it even looks artistic. But I'm over rotating my waltz. Actually I like landing over rotated the edge feels good. Should I go aheaed and do another 180 degrees?

I know I should prolly stick to learning a mapes, but just thought I'd ask for opinions.

Smile Go ahead and add the 180 degrees. Isn't that a forward loop jump?

Derrick,

You can do whatever you want. It doesn’t matter. If it makes you feel good that is what it is all about.

As a purest, yeah I would love to see an axel and a double mapes, but heck what are dreams for???

Most people today cheat everything. They cheat the beginning of the jump, they cheat the ending of the jump, so what the heck.

Keep up the good work and good questions..

I think a loop would be all on one foot. I would change performing feet in the air. If I ever get to a loop, backwards seems the way to go.
