thanks in advance!
Are you riding on to the box? Eventually you will want to learn how to be able to get onto a "street-style" rail by angling on from the side. When trying to do spins (past 180), lead with your head and shoulder... don't try to turn your hips as you will likely counter-rotate.

Other tricks to think about
- 50-50
- nosepress
- tailpress...
- boardslide ride out switch
- frontside boardslide (I'm assuming you are doing what is typically a "backside boardslide" which is when you toeside edge is facing downhill), a frontside is when your heelside edge is going downhill (you'll lean about lipslides later).
