I've been riding for about 5 or 6 years now but mostly free riding and I've just started getting into freestyle this year. I'm 5'8" 135 pounds and ride regular. My 180 are on lock on side hits and rollers but I just can't get them on this jump.

Any help given is appreciated thanks for reading my post.
Make sure you are doing a set up turn. When you are approaching the lip do a heel side turn and as you begin to travel up the lip do a toe side turn and take off straight but still from your edge. This will help your rotation. Since 180 is such a small spin you wont need to pre wind. Pop off both feet and let the rotation come naturally and calmly. The way I spot the landing on my back 1's is by looking up hill until I see the knuckle pass under me. Bend your knees as you land and look forward and ride away switch.
