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.
disagree completely....a nice big, slow bs 180 is tits in my book! seen quite a few peeps go both ways on all spins...didnt realize there was a rule that you always go fs for 360s or 180s and bs for anything bigger
