Whenever you are going for a 180, always go frontside. It is just easier. You spin backside if you are going for big rotation like 540+ and frontside for 360- usually. For a tip, spin frontside and always counter rotate. Just wind up your arms, and once you hit the lip of the jump turn your hips to about a 20 degree angle or so for a little extra spin help, and whip your arms around for the 180. Just don't whip them too hard though. 180's are really easy and don't need pre-wind at all, they are really all in the hips, but what I just said is just an easy beginner way to learn.(sorry if this sounds horrible, I can't give tuts =p)
