Rotation

Rotation occurs when the board and body turn in relation to the fall line. The smallest possible rotation is a Shifty Air, and while theoretically limitless, a 1260 (three and a half rotations) is a the largest spin currently practicable at the highest level of snowboarding.

Rotations must be in multiples of 180 degrees; less or more most often involves falling. 360s, 720s and 1080s involve taking off and landing with the same foot forward, while 180s and 540s and 900s involve a change from either goofy to regular or vice versa.
