Sit spin position is a bent spinning leg and a fully stretchedfreeleg. The freeleg is turned out and held in front with both thighs almosttouching. Some skaters have their freeleg bent and wrapped around the spinningleg, which I feel distorts the figure of the spin.
Some variation of the sit spin :-
Broken leg sit spin - sit spin position with freeleg turned in andheld to the side instead of the usual turned out and to the front.
Full sit - sit spin with spinning leg fully bent. Skater will be sittingon the boot of the spinning leg.
Flying spins are spins preceeded with a jump. The rotation speedhowever may not be as fast as the normal spins.
The flying spins are:
Flying sit - jump and land on a sit spin
Axel sit - a flying back sit
Flying camel - jump and land on a back camel
Death drop - flying camel followed immediately by a back sit
Arabians or butterfly - a mere jump attaining the flying position in theair (like a starfish) and land. May or may not be followed by a spin.

If you are unable to get up on one foot by either pulling forward very hard over the , it is okay to push on the skating thigh with one or both hands to push yourself up while you are working towards mastering the sit spin.
