Rotation refers to the circular movement of a skateboard around its center (or point) of rotation. There are three basic types of rotation; Lateral Rotation, Axis Rotation and Transverse Axis Rotation.
Transverse Axis Rotation
Transverse Axis Rotation rotates around the axial plane that divides the nose and tail. Many Truck-to-Truck Transfer Tricks, like a Carousel, fall into this category. Many other tricks utilize this rotation and often combine with one of the other types of rotations.
