I'm at the same progression point, though I haven't really tried 3's that much yet. I built a small kicker on my property and got 180's down, but haven't really pushed myself to do 3's yet. I will have to agree that having a bigger jumper with more airtime helps with bigger spins, because right now off my little kicker it feels like I'm gonna have to freakin toss myself to get enough spin in time to land. I know it's totally makeable because you see people do 3's off of nothing, but it's hard before you land them.

The one benefit of 3's is that when you do nail the rotation, you don't have to land switch which helps with the landing.

This guy does some great video's on how-to's, here's a vid on backside 3's for regular riders,(there is a goofy version too)
