atr3yu Fuck man, right on! I am totally gutless and can't work up the balls to try spinning. I can't ride switch for the life of me so I keep saying I am just going to learn 3's... I am really hoping tomorrow I can try spinning tomorrow. I have a few side hits picked out in my head to start trying. I suspect I will puss out, so I may just ride switch all day to learn..... then i can just try 1's.....lol

Rasse Well done man I hope I can be as cool as you "old" dudes when I'm your age tried teaching Bs 360's to my dad last season, he just turned 50. Maybe he lands one this season, he is getting close

If it has to be successful, then I can't join yet. I am going to Woodward at Copper in a week and hopefully a full day freestyle lesson will progress me to the point that I can join this exclusive club.

I finally conceded that 40 year olds playing these games should wear some padded shorts and wrist guards.

Quick question, can you do a standing 360 from the floor? I was trying that this morning after watching a Snowboard Addiction vid and I'm not even coming that close.

To answer your question, it's more a matter of skill than brute strength. I was practicing standing 360s in the gym a couple years ago (without a board or anything) and if I jumped hard enough to complete the spin, I'd cork. After taking tramp lessons and getting the feel for leading the spin with my head (and not dipping my shoulder) I can do the spins quite easily. I'd be happy to try it on the snow with my board on as well, AS SOON AS WE GET SOME FUCKING SNOW!!!!

Yes you can. The spin progression to a 360 is relatively straight forward. Start with spinning 180's on snow and keep doing that until you're ready to rotate in the air. After that, do the 180's in air. Once you're comfortable with in air 180's, the next step would be to rotate 180 in air, then complete the rest of the 360 flat ground. So 180 in air, flat 180. After that, try the 360 in air. A few points the evaluator taught was to pick an anchor point that kept your eyes up, and to rotate from the hips, not the shoulders.

Ha. My usual lunch includes a giant margarita, ibuprofen and aceto-whatever.

Gives me pain relief AND Dutch courage for the arvo sesh. Believe me, you don't need to be an old fella to need it. Mind you I'm 30 this year so I'm well on my way, 15-20 odd years of rugby has made this body the equivalent of a 90 year old.
