Default How do you deal with kickers?

I've been trying to 360 for two seasons by now, I've locked down the FS 360 rotation off of side of jumps and rollers last season to FS 360 flat on the ground this season but never actually had another chance to try it on a good beginner jump. So last week I went to my local mountain and they had an intimidating step down and a kicker. My first attempt at the kicker I tried 360'ing it, but I just.. cork it and land flat on my ass before the even reaching the knuckle. I feel like it just curves upwards waaaaaayy too fast so naturally when I spin, I don't spin horizontally. I'm not even close to being horizontal when I leave the lip... I've tried doing straight airs on it, and I land perfectly, somehow. Question is, how do I spin kickers like this?..

I drew a sketch of how the kicker looks like, I may have exaggerated, but I honestly think that's how it was, at least how it felt.
