yah, dave's point about it being half a back roll is spot on. the act of edging and popping is half a back roll. that's why committing to the front roll is so important, as you really have to force your body to rotate in a direction opposite from what you started at...
watch shawn richman do a front roll. watch his head. he's super exaggerated in how he throws it. you should do the same.

Also, it's a pretty easy progression to go from a frontroll to continuing the spin into a toeside landing.
The first time it happened for me was a mistake when I threw the rotation too hard and kept going.
I'm sure the freestyle kids will be replying to this with the correct name for the trick I am talking about.
It says 10M, but it's really a 9.

I sure hope he found a way to do those back rolls 3 years ago...
