when moving over a Bump, knob, roller etc... try buttering or reverting the whole 180 around while your board is still on the ground, this eliminates alot of the risk of falling. This will help get your rotation down and put you into a semi-air situation. Once you get this technique nailed, over ther same rollers youve mastered, start bringing your knees up so you board leaves the ground. The transition between on ground 180's and in the air 180's should be pretty smooth.
