How to 360 properly?
For the past 2 seasons I have been snowboarding, I have been doing decent on the rails, grabs and most all tricks, but one thing that has been holding me back in my inability to spin. Technically, I can land a 360 off a jump, but the problem is, the technique that I use to get a 360 will pretty much only allow me to do 360s, and maybe possibly a 540 but that's pretty much it. In probably way too much detail im going to explain what I do.
First I'm building up speed on the area to the jump, what you normally do.
Then I setup for the spin off the jump.
I pop off the jump, my upper body goes into the spin but my legs stay straight for 2 seconds.
I counter rotate my upper body to get my legs to spin, here I can try to kick my legs in a wheel direction to force them to spin.
My legs move forward and can go up to a 360 spin.
My body is counter rotated to the point where if I spin my legs forward more, or move my arms back more, it would probably injure my stomach.
I probably don't need to explain why this is a problem, but this technique looks bad and limits my spinning ability, and also makes it impossible to do a grab when spinning. So if anybody knows anything about this problem and why my 360's arn't working out, please help out.
Also I have seen most of the videos on how to 360 and 540, but if anybody knows any lesser known but equally important tips, those would be incredibly helpful too.
