Backside for me, but my frontside is almost the same for spins under 7s. For most people it's just whichever spin they got comfortable with first that becomes their 'natural' spin direction.
I learnt bs 180s first and so that's what I got comfortable with first and it just carried on as I progressed.
You can always make it more even if you force yourself to practice your less comfortable direction, but from what I've seen very few people ever work on their other direction enough to make it feel as natural as their first spin direction (although they really should).

whichever direction you prefer, don't neglect the other one, that's were the challenge lies
the jump, or lip, usually suggest which direction to spin for me (no park)

PS...I find that my BS 360 always land me tail-heavy. Should I just be shifting my weight to be more centered on the board? Almost "lean in" to the jump before popping off my toes?

|ShredLife||my favorite fuckaround tricks are bs 180s and fs 360s... i guess i like blind landings... i usually look back uphill as i land.|

|Mystery2many||BS for me too. I just feel more control and power off my toe edge. Only FS I like to do is 180s usually involving some sort of press or butter to make it a little more stylish.|
