you landed super tail heavy in the backseat, heel edge with a hand drag. It's natural that you have next to zero control over the board in this situation, spinning out probably saved you a nasty scorpion

All things considered I don't know how you muscled around a 3.

Your arms are doing some crazy stuff for the entire spin and I'm not sure but it didn't look like you were properly looking over your shoulder. I think it's the last part that is really causing the washout and tail-heavy landing, you were nowhere near close to spotting the landing looking forward and opening up to stop the rotation. In fact as you touched down you were basically looking back and down at the tail of your board.

Landing on the bolts will help, too, if you can firmly stomp the landing you'll be less likely to spin out.
