Can anyone explain the best way to wire up 6 LED strips of 60 pixels in S type connection?

I'd like all of the data direction to be up, instead of up-down

    \$\begingroup\$ Are you saying you want the data flow from the top of a given column of pixels to come to the bottom of the next column instead of just connecting to the nearby top pixel? What is the reason for that? (If it's for programming reasons, you should consider making a translation or look-up-table so you abstract the wiring sequence away from firmware development.) \$\endgroup\$

Flip the ‘down’ strings so that their data direction is the same, and make a hidden connection end to end with a passive jumper between rows (so, wired like a ‘Z’ instead of an ‘S’.)

Or, remap the LEDs by software.
