Definition: The McTwist was invented in the early 1980s by skateboarder Mike McGill, and has since been adopted by snowboarders. To perform the trick, the rider does a front flip while at the same time spinning a backside 540. A variety of grabs (most often a mute grab) are used to give the trick more style.
In early 2010, Shaun White debuted a new trick - the Double McTwist 1260, which involves two flips and three and a half spins.
