Also riding normal and then flat spinning 180 I ate shit quite often catching an edge. Olling went well though, but I have done that a lot in my living room. I never talked myself into a jumping 180 and also pussies out on the smallest jump in the park. I think in two weeks I am going to take a two hour private "freestyle" lesson. I always feel better having a person in the know show me how to do things so I can try them. At least if I fail then I am failing at trying to do it right.
Since you're falling just sliding 180 around I would work on your helicopters. Just sliding around in circles both ways. It should get you out of the "sequence" you go through when riding natural. It is how I warm up ever day. Also when I I ride switch my biggest thing is simply turning my head enough. I also find practicing switch is easier well away from the bunny hill. The bunny hill can be too flat for proper snowboarding.
